Bingo Night this Saturday!

Get Ready for Bingo Night 2017!
Saturday January 21, 2017
Grace Episcopal Church

Each January Arms Around Bainbridge brightens the dark days of the winter with a fantastic night out. Excellent food, friends and bingo come together to make a fundraiser to benefit our family of recipients.

This year in particular, as we search for ways to make sense of the climate in our country, it feels more appropriate than ever to turn where we can have a tremendous impact – right here in our own community. We can say that everyone matters; we can say that all humans deserve groceries and housing. We can say that those in need, who live right here on our tiny island, will not go wanting. We can say that facing a major medical crisis doesn’t have to break a family – that we’ve got their back.

Please plan to join us on Saturday, January 21 for outstanding food, warm friendship, rollicking bingo games and a paddle call to raise funds to support our family of recipients.

If you would like to host a table, please contact Jackie Fabbri at

2nd Annual Spin-a-thon, A Ride to Remember

Join us Sunday, April 27th from 8:00am to Noon at Island Fitness

Like last year, we’ve got four hours of fun waiting for you!  Four different instructors will lead you through a heart-pumping, calorie burning good time for a great cause!

What’s a Spin-a-thon? Indoor cyclists sign up to ride spin bicycles for anywhere from one to four hours (three people rode all 4 hours last year).  A different instructor leads each hour.  It’s loud, it’s fun and there are lots of prizes.  In addition to riding spin cycles, we are building a Wall of Love in the event room with names and pictures of family and friends who have or are currently battled serious illness.

What’s this all about? We are raising money to provide support to the current and future beneficiaries of Arms Around Bainbridge – all members of our community battling serious illness. Click here to meet our recipients.

Click here to register to ride at the event, make a donation, add to the wall of love, or create a fundraising page for someone meaningful in your life that is battling a serious illness.

Bonus: The AAB store will be open for the event.  You’ll be able to try on and order AAB logo’d sportswear.  The AAB store is open two times per year.
