Zine Fest Fundraiser This Friday @826CHI

l84044-1.jpgWhat better way to fundraise for good-old-fashioned paper and ink than with good-old-fashioned Bingo? Chicago Zine Fest, the annual celebration of small press, indie publishers and self-published artists, is holding its third annual Bingo Night fundraiser this Friday, November 22, 7-9pm at 826CHI, 1331 North Milwaukee Ave.

Gather your lucky trolls and a $10 entry donation for a chance to win prizes from Handlebar restaurant, Laurie's Planet of Sound, Uncle Fun, and much more. Comic artist (of the graphic, not comedic sort) Rachel Foss will be hosting and snacks will be available, but you can BYOB. All proceeds will benefit Chicago Zine Fest, scheduled for March 14 & 15, 2014.
