GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - A round of bingo games is raising money for cancer screenings.

Cancer Services of Eastern NC is hosting Handbag Bingo at the Greenville Museum of Art on Thursday, September 19 at 6 pm.

The event will feature 10 rounds of bingo, with the winner of each game taking home a designer handbag. Organizers say there will be Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Calvin Klein bags and more.

There will also be door prizes, appetizers and pop-up boutique shopping.

Connie Conner, the president of Cancer Services of Eastern NC, is a 10-year breast cancer survivor. She says her fight inspired her to get involved with the organization.

"I had to go through chemotherapy and as I was going to chemotherapy, there were lots of people who had no one and I had an entourage. It broke my heart to see how many people go through this alone and one of the missions of our organization is that no one goes through cancer alone," said Conner.

The organization provides services for cancer patients, caregivers and their families. Conner says the event will help pay for quarterly breast cancer screenings the organization provides throughout the community.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door. For more information, click here.
