St. Francis Society Animal Rescue presents COSPLAY FOR GIVE DAY & CHARITY BINGO!!!

It's going to be the Purr-fect Party as Cosplayers from all over the Tampa Bay area descend on Hamburger Mary's Tampa in Ybor to promote Give Day and KittyCon Tampa Bay. Make your dinner reservations for 5:30pm or 6pm and then visit with the cosplayers, grab some selfies, buy some raffle tickets for the popular 50-50, and best of all, support your favorite animal rescue by making an online donation onsite to the Give Day Fundraising Page for St. Francis Society Animal Rescue.

Customers are welcome to come in costume too. Whether you wear cat ears, a dog nose, face paint, or full on furry, all are welcome. Costumes aren't limited to the pets... superheroes, fantasy, renfest, pirates, sci fi, monsters, anime, whatever feeds your kitty- dress as your favorite alter ego and come out to play!!! or just come as you are and enjoy the show!!!

Prizes for the best cosplays to be announced!!!

Just a reminder, Hamburger Mary's is a restaurant so you'll probably want to wear a costume that will fit in a seat or a booth and move between tables as there's not any room for a full scale Godzilla. Also while Over the Top plays well at Hamburger Mary's, you still have to follow the rules against public nudity so keep the bit parts top and bottom covered. Also the usual rule against real weapons apply and please don't make any simulations look too real either. Now the boo part- Hamburger Mary's and St. Francis Society reserve the right to turn away anyone in costume deemed too inappropriate for a public place or a costume too big or elaborate for the space and safety in the restaurant. Otherwise--- Party On Garth!!!!

Charity Bingo cards go on sale at 7pm. For a donation of $10 cash, you get to play 10 games of bingo hosted by one of the Tampa's most fabulous drag queens. This isn't your grandma's church bingo so be warned- viewer discretion is advised..and you may laugh yourself silly. St. Francis is proud to offer some of the best prize baskets for the winners of the bingo games.

The games begin at 7:30pm and the winner of the 50-50 will be announced at the end of the evening.

St. Francis Society will also be collecting donations for Give Day. Give Day Tampa Bay is a 24-hour online giving challenge on Tuesday, May 1 to benefit nonprofit organizations in the Tampa Bay area. Nonprofits registered to participate in Give Day are eligible for prizes and this year, donations collected from Tuesday, April 17 through Give Day on Tuesday, May 1 will count toward the St. Francis total. Donations made to Give Day during the Cosplay for Give Day party will qualify for special raffle tickets with the opportunity to win $200 in gift certificates to the Columbia Restaurant.

If you are unable to attend Cosplay for Give Day & Charity Bingo, please consider making your donation today for St. Francis Society Animal Rescue. All donations made through Give Day, Tuesday, May 1 will count towards to St. Francis Society's Give Day total.
