LCFEF Bingo Raises Concerns

First published in the Oct. 6 print issue of the Outlook Valley Sun.

Many in our community were not aware of the bingo fundraiser that was held on Sept. 16 by the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation. The special guest of the evening, drag queen Roxy Wood (who has a public Facebook page for anyone to view), has posted pictures and videos on Facebook of the LCFEF event. These posts included Roxy using vulgar language and innuendos and smacking individuals on their rears, full force, with a whip for calling out a “bad bingo” while others looked on and laughed at the person being spanked.
Have we become so desensitized that the LCFEF Board and the people in our community think it is acceptable to promote and celebrate this kind of inappropriate behavior in the name of our students? Perhaps some feel that this is only harmless adult entertainment — to each their own — but such entertainment should have never taken place at an event sponsored by the foundation to raise funds for the children of our district.
This event is only a symptom of how out of touch our leadership is with the traditional social, moral and religious fiber of many families in this community.
LCFEF comprises an incredible group of people who generously give their time and talents to tirelessly raise upward of $2 million each year for the enrichment of our schools and the lives of our students.
I write this because I believe it is crucial that we protect the integrity of our organizations and our schools here in La Cañada. It takes a village, and if we hold each other accountable, we can ensure the continued success of our outstanding public school system.
