Beach bingo to benefit Miriam’s Table Feb. 24

February 3, 2024

Miriam's Table will hold its annual  beach bingo fundraiser from 4 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 24, St. Jude's Parish Life Hall, 152 Tulip Drive, Lewes.

The event will feature 10 rounds of bingo, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. Complimentary beach food and popcorn will be served. Tables are set for eight, but parties of up to 10 can be accommodated. Tickets are $25 per person; to purchase, go to and search Beach Bingo, go to Miriam’s Table on Facebook, or call Susie Keefer at 814-673-4148.

Miriam's Table, a nonprofit organization founded 10 years ago by Lewes residents Ed and Susie Keefer, serves children in the Democratic Republic of Congo who face chronic malnutrition. Their organization provides 350 to 400 children with a nutritious meal five days a week. It also dispenses medications and supplies mosquito netting to fight malaria. It has funded construction of a fresh water drinking well and creates 12 full-time jobs for local residents.

Keefer just returned from a trip to Congo, where talks began to plan a healthcare facility that would be located on the Miriam's Table property.

The annual bingo fundraiser raises a large part of Miriam's Table's annual budget. Just 52 cents pays for one meal and $155 feeds a child for a year.
