imageWhen the monthly themed PALS Bingo game set its sites on the sitcom “Married With Children,” Peg Bundy costumes topped the list, but Amanda Bearse revisiting her own character Marcy Darcy stole the show.

The lesbian actress-turned-director, who lives in Georgia when she’s not behind the camera in Hollywood, was the guest of honor at the Oct. 13 fundraiser for Pets Are Loving Support, which helps critically ill people keep and care for their pets.

The popular monthly game has drawn a big gay crowd for years, and this month was no exception. Scores of LGBT patrons from all walks of life dobbed their bingo cards toward prizes and mingled with each other in the name of a good cause.

Bearse’s friend and fellow gay actor Mitchell Anderson and his partner Richie Arpino (third photo, l-r) were also on hand. Anderson owns the MetroFresh eatery in Midtown Promenade, and Arpino is a noted salon owner and photographer.

November’s PALS “Fantasy & Fetish” Bingo game is set for Nov. 10, and the group’s “Hard Candy Christmas” Bingo takes place on Dec. 8.
