Hollywood Veteran Produces A Virtual Christmas Bingo Family Nite with HBCU graduates in mind (2811 hits)


The Covid-19 pandemic is threatening to one again take the world by storm much like the grinch who stole Christmas! Well, not if award-winning author, and international speaker, TeeJ Mercer has anything to say about it.

On Friday, December 19th, Mercer, an award-winning TV Editor/ producer who has worked on projects for networks like ABC, MTV, NBC, and OWN along with studios such as Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, Universal Studios and Walt Disney is throwing another FREE virtual Bingo party beginning at 6:15 pm EST that has proven to be the ultimate experience of virtual BINGO like you’ve never seen before.

Craziness, clowning around, and cold hard cash prizes!! This is far from your grandma’s classic game of BINGO. With a live DJ, vivacious atmosphere, and chat room shenanigans, TeeJ’s Halloween Family BINGO Nite is an epic extravaganza for all ages, packed with laughter, dance breaks, cash, prizes, mini-game challenges, and winning big!! Hundreds of guests piling the room per game and international audiences representing from Australia, Bermuda, Bahamas and more!
Driven by childhood nostalgia, The Celebrity BINGO Boss herself, TeeJ Mercer felt bad that COVID-19 was
canceling families holiday gatherings and celebrations.

“I hated knowing the kids couldn’t participate in holiday school parties or indoor activities this year so I wanted to bring fun to them and their families.”

But the rebirth of BINGO didn’t just happen overnight. Mercer, who wakes up daily asking God to show her how to be a “S.A.P.” (Somebody’s Answered Prayer), asked for divine guidance on how to be of service to those who felt disconnected and isolated. So back in April, what started as 1 night, 10 games, and $100, quickly grew into a virtual party of nearly 300 people and almost $10,000 in cash and prizes by its 6th week.

But she didn’t stop there! The Walking Exclamation Point, as Mercer is often called, got a divine idea to bless the 2020 class of HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) graduates. Together, the Howard University alumnus along with her Bingo Squad gave the fortunate grads four insane nights in June of Bingo thrills, giggles, celebrity guest appearances, and over $1 million in cash and prizes that she raised in less than four weeks , giving birth to The Celebrity Bingo Boss Experience !

“It has just blown my mind to see how an old game of Bingo could explode like this...” Mercer exclaimed, “I don’t know who has more fun, me or the Bingo-ers, but I’m so grateful that I get to love on them like this, while having a blast myself!”

As word continued to fly amongst her celebrity friends and cheerful graduates, primetime media outlets quickly caught wind. Even CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell had to witness the madness! Mercer starts the games off nice and easy for the kiddos but then slowly graduates to turbo speed for the well-seasoned players. And by the time the final game is reached, you’ll be wishing this experience never had to end!

Recent HBCU graduate, Jasmine Houston-Rosado says “You would never imagine that BINGO could be this fun. This is more than a game night, it’s an adventure!”

Former co-host of “The View,” actress and comedian Sherri Shepherd, notes “The nights I popped on, I could tell TeeJ merged her infectious personality and Hollywood producer skills to what could be a bland game and transformed it into an exciting and fun night of BINGO epicness!”

TeeJ Mercer’s contagious joy and hilarious antics generate amazing energy that Bingo-ers can’t seem to get enough of. And with surprises always in her back pocket, you’ll never know what's coming next. This game surely earned its tagline, “This ain’t your grandma’s BINGO!”

The squeal of TeeJ’s signature phrase, “THAT’S A GOOOOOOOD BINGO,” kicks off Friday, December 19, 2020, at 6:15 pm EST on Zoom.
