SOUTH GLENDALE ? For Silva Kushnatsian, the Cops For Kids fundraiser Thursday evening was the perfect combination of one of her favorite games, bingo, and supporting a good cause. A self-described bingo junkie, Kushnatsian had 15 checkered bingo cards laid out in front of her to prove it. "It's pure chance," she said. "The only strategy is to buy more because the more you have, the better chance you have of winning." But the real winners of the bingo fundraiser were not at the Elk's Lodge near downtown last night.

Having numbers such as ?Jello 47? called out a conventional bingo game would probably drive a die-hard player to throw up his arms in disgust. Thankfully, not too many die-hards were in the audience at the inaugural bingo event hosted by the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club last Tuesday evening. About 60 people turned out for the fundraiser, many of whom had never attended a chamber event before. The lure of bingo, however, was too strong to ignore, so newcomers to the chamber plunked down $10 for their bingo card, snacks and prizes.

Glendale resident Penny Hansen is not an avid bingo player, but when she heard about a special Thursday night game benefiting underprivileged children, she bought enough cards to last the night and even chipped in a few extra bucks for more than a dozen raffle tickets. That special game, held at the Glendale Elk’s Lodge, was a benefit for the Glendale Police Officers Assn.’s Cops for Kids — a 20-year-old program that raises money to purchase holiday gifts for underprivileged children.

About 140 moms and sons recently attended Holy Redeemer's inaugural Mother/Son Ball at the school's Healy Hall. The theme for the night was Let's Play Ball and the attendees dressed accordingly, attired in team jerseys, hats and other sport paraphernalia. The Hall was decorated with pennants that had each been tagged with a student's name so they could take it home as a keepsake at the end of the evening. In addition to the pennants, organizer Liz Alfonso also took care in decorating each of the tables with festive centerpieces with football balloons.

Harry Pryor was an enthusiastic cheerleader for any group he supported, so when he joined the Verdugo Club it seemed natural for him to take charge of choosing callers for the monthly bingo games. Pryor began developing his leadership skills when he was just 9 years old. That's when he started delivering papers for the San Bernardino Sun. While in high school, his principal asked him to plan a daylong event for members of the orchestras, oratorical societies and sports teams of all five high schools in the San Bernardino area.

CITY HALL — As part of the plan to fill a projected $18-million budget gap for this fiscal year, the public will come up against a range of increased and new fees for city services that went into effect this month. Officials project the fees — which run the gamut from pet licenses to building permits — will raise an additional $1.3 million in revenue this fiscal year. City officials recommended the fee increases to better recapture the cost of providing services based on the results of a study prepared by consulting firm Wildan Financial Services.
