Team Maryland catered to a crowd of more 300 people at the team’s annual Longerberger Basket Bingo fundraiser on April 6. This sold out event raised more than $8,000 to assist team members in travel costs associated with the 2014 Transplant Games of America in Houston, Texas July 10 -15, 2014. 

Latrice Price, Team Maryland Manager said, “Now in our 6th year, Basket Bingo has become one of our major fundraisers for Team Maryland. It has been a pleasure to see the event grow over the years and we are happy to have so many faithful supporters.”
