Event will benefit toddler with cancer

Put on some pink and get ready to shout bingo! at the “Princess Ellie Longaberger Basket Bingo” this Saturday in support of Ellie Blaine.

Ellie is a 2½-year-old with Pineoblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer, and the event’s proceeds will go to her Orange County family for treatments and other needs.

Doors open at the Gordonsville VFW Hall at 3 p.m., with games starting at 5 p.m. The hall is at 10271 Gordon Ave. There will be auctions, raffles, door prizes, and, of course, Bingo.

Tickets are $20 if reserved early and $25 at the door. To reserve tickets call 540/229-1979 or 434/960-2652. Participants are invited to wear pink because it is Ellie’s favorite color.
