The Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and A.J. McLean and *NSYNC’s Lance Bass and Joey Fatone are teaming up for a charity Pride event, according to ET Online. Bingo Under the Stars is set to be a throwback event with all the nostalgia your boy band-loving heart can handle. It’s set at The Grove in Los Angeles on June 18 with 10 games of Bingo that lead to special prizes.

A portion of the ticket sales to the two-hour event will go to L.A. Pride and Pride Makes a Difference, their month-long campaign of the year. In their continued support of the LGBTQ+ community, a gift will be given to The Trevor Project, the leading organization that provides suicide prevention and intervention to the LGBTQ+ community.

Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, Lance Bass, and Joey Fatone are set to do performances of fan-favorite songs. And it’s my hope, even though I’m not going to be there, that they really go wild and do mash-ups of their classic songs. Seriously, imagine “I Want It That Way” having a musical child with “Tearin’ Up My Heart”? The result would be glorious and you know it!

You can buy tickets here to support the event.
