Girls Night Out

The first time Beverly Donofrio accompanied her mother to her weekly bingo night, she was shocked. Instead of finding a group of genteel older ladies showing one another pictures of their grandchildren, she found what she calls “bingo cronies” in a smoke-filled hall. The players were competitive, cranky, and impatient. “Not all of them are rude,” explained Beverly's mother. “But a majority of them are.” Five years later, Beverly gave it another shot, and this time it was different. She discovered the joy of playing bingo at her mother’s side.
