You're Invited: Alternatives Pregnancy Center to host 'Designer Purse Bingo'

Posted: Updated:

Alternatives Pregnancy Center, a non-profit pregnancy resource center in Waterloo, will host a designer purse bingo fundraiser on October 26.  For each round of Bingo, a designer purse will be the prize for the winner. 

"We have a variety of purses available, including Kate Spade, Michael Kors and more.  They have been donated by both individuals and businesses in the Cedar Valley,"said Megan Yturriaga, Executive Director of Alternatives Pregnancy Center.

Each round will cost $5, and will directly benefit the work the center does in the community.  That work ranges from pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and parenting classes, and is all provided to anyone in the Cedar Valley, free of charge.  Fundraisers like this are the reason the center is able to continue to provide quality care for free.

"Because we offer all of our services at no cost, this fundraiser is a fun way to be a part of that," said Yturriaga.  "By playing Bingo, you are helping to build healthy families in the Cedar Valley." 

Alternatives Pregnancy Center, which receives no state or federal funding, opened its doors in 1991. Since that time, they have served about 13,000 women in the Cedar Valley community. 

"One thing that makes Alternatives special is our commitment to the dignity of the clients we serve.  We treat them with the utmost respect and honor, no matter what the individual circumstances may be."

The fundraiser will be held at Valley Lutheran School (4520 Rownd Street in Cedar Falls) at 6:30 p.m.   More information on Alternatives Pregnancy Center (1006 Decathlon Dr., Waterloo) can be found here.
