The evening will feature designers such as Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Prada, Furla, Rebecca Minkoff and more. Guests can also try their luck at the Balloon Pop station, stocked with a number of incredible prizes, or enter into the 50/50 raffle. To add to the excitement, New Ground is introducing for the first time ever an Exclusive Buy-In Bonus Round of BINGO. In this round, guests have the chance to try their luck at winning a vintage Gucci handbag donated by Lucky Finds Boutique, and hand painted by local artist Greg Belmonte, owner of Bella Bags. Don’t miss your chance to win this one-of-a-kind custom painted luxury handbag and become a trendsetter among the rest!


Event Co-Chairs include Sheila McDougal, a longtime resident of Rockville Centre and Owner of Interior Redesign of Long Island, and Jenny Tzakas-Polizotto, a resident of Garden City and Owner of Jenny Tzakas Interiors. “We have had the pleasure of producing this event for the last 6 years and are always amazed at the level of support from our local community members,” said McDougal and Tzakas-Polizotto. “We are proud to share that since its inception, Designer Handbag Bingo has raised over $125,000 in support of New Ground’s homeless Veterans and families. Together, we are truly changing lives for so many people in need.”


Founded in 1991, New Ground provides intensive Social Work and education services to homeless Long Islanders to help Veterans and families break the cycle of homelessness. After completing New Ground’s programs, clients have accomplished various goals in areas of education, employment, financial literacy, parenting, and more, and have secured permanent, stable housing. New Ground has been successful in assisting Veterans and families in living independently with a brighter future now, and for generations to come.
