Bingo rocks Brighton

Thalia with Musyoka at the Happy House
There's a whole new twist on Brighton rock when our good friends Marc and Thalia Venturi hold a Happy House charity night there on Tuesday, October 30.
The highlight of the night with be Rock and Roll Bingo - a fun game which is taking the entertainment industry by storm - with some great prizes up for grabs.
It replaces the caller with a burst of popular music and the numbers on the cards with the names of famous bands/ singers and songs so it so much more upbeat than the traditional "Legs 11" and "Two Fat Ladies" game.
Marc and Thalia's fundraiser is taking place at the King and Queen, Marlborough Place, from 6.30pm-10.30pm, so if you live any where near Brighton please go along to support our family - you can be assured of a very warm welcome!
 Prizes for the bingo and raffle include wine and chocolates, a private pod on the Brighton Wheel for up to 8, beauty treatments worth £40, restaurant vouchers, all-day passes to Brighton pier rides, family ticket to the Sealife Centre, a record breaking Hot Chilli hamper, family 3D cinema tickets and Bowlplex tickets.

 Marc and Thalia and their children Emma and Joe have been supporting the Happy House since they first heard about it from Sue in 2007 - when it was still just an idea!
 Marc said: "We saw the great work she had done with building a school and helping so many children and she inspired us with her vision to build the Happy House. We wanted to be a part of that and help as much as we possibly could."
Since then they have raised thousands of pounds for the charity, enlisted much support from local people in Brighton"As a family we have always wanted to help children in third world countries who are less fortunate than ourselves, however we never really knew how to go about it.
"Meeting Sue has enabled us to make this possible and there is no better feeling knowing you have helped make a difference to a child's life. Raising money for the Happy House means we can see the difference first hand and the smiles on the children's faces!
