Jingle Ball Bingo will be hosted by the Okanagan’s Orca Queen, Freida Whales, and everyone’s favourite drag granny, the Legendary “OG”, Sophonda Dick. These frenemies will keep the content somewhat ‘clean’ — but we’re rating it PG-13 just to be on the safe side.

Jingle Bingo Balls is proudly presented by LOUD Business – LGBTQ Business Association of Vancouver, sponsored by TD, supported by the Kanata Kelowna Hotel and Conference Centre, and produced by Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc.

About Your Hostesses

Sophonda Dick is a seasoned drag performer whose style blends camp, glamour and comedy, drawing on influences from the Golden Age of Hollywood. ‘Seasoned’ doesn’t mean she’s a spring chicken: at 69 years young, this gal has been working runways up and down the West Coast in the USA, in BC, and in Alberta since the late 1960s. Often referred to as “everyone’s favourite drag granny, Sophonda’s quick wit, kind-but-cutting humour, and elegant style make her a perennial favourite that will leave you smouldering and longing for show tunes!

Freida Whales has been making a splash in the Okanagan drag scene for over three years. With her signature blend of ocean-themed puns, glamour, and camp, she is always ready to spread waves of love. Freida enjoys creating events for and performing to audiences of all ages. In January she won the title of 2019 Newsmaker of the Year (Kelowna Daily Courier) and in July she won Silver for Best Local Artist (not musician) in Best of Kelowna 2020. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Freida hasn’t slowed down at all! She has continued creating content, including a YouTube channel featuring digital story times, music videos, and interviews with iconic names, such as Dr. Bonnie Henry and Jimbo from Canada’s Drag Race.
