After careful consideration, the Friends of St. Philip’s Bingo, BBQ, and Blues event is postponed to September 24, 2020. We stand with St. Philip’s decision to make this change in compliance with the request from our city, state, and government leadership. 

We sincerely appreciate your support of St. Philip’s through this inaugural event. All sponsorships and tickets already purchased will be honored for the rescheduled event.

We look forward to celebrating this great organization and so much more in the coming months. Thank you very much for your understanding and support.
