Black Tie Bingo 2019!

Black Tie Bingo – Northern Lights Raised $266,000!

With exquisite cuisine, five games of pulse-pounding Bingo, over 100 incredible live and silent auction prizes and the very best company (you!), we took our guests on a trip to view the natural beauty of the Northern Lights and raised $266,000 for Guelph General Hospital.

Funds raised through this year’s event will purchase new specialized bed systems for the Bob Ireland Family Intensive Care Unit. Guelph General Hospital staff will no longer have to juggle which patient will get the best bed. Now all of our ICU patients will be able to have their care on a bed that has incredible built-in technology to help them recover safely and more speedily, reducing the chance of complications like skin degradation and pneumonia.

Black Tie Bingo is the fundraising gala of the year in support of Guelph General Hospital.

Black Tie Bingo – Northern Lights marks the 23rd Annual Black Tie Bingo which has now netted more than $3.2 million – money that has helped Guelph General Hospital caregivers save lives and improve health, through the purchase of urgently needed equipment for virtually every patient care area. Equipment purchases have included everything from patient lifts to operating room scopes to our digital mammography machine, our MRI scanner and now three new laparoscopic towers.

One of every two dollars spent on hospital equipment at Guelph General Hospital comes from a donor. Funds raised at Black Tie Bingo give our Hospital’s healthcare workers the tools they need to deliver exceptional and quality patient care. You will make a direct impact in the lives of people within our community when they are in greatest need of medical care.

Every year, Black Tie Bingo delivers many exceptional auction prizes. Get caught up in the excitement during the live auction where you can bid on prizes such as a piece of fine custom jewelry, a designer suite, or a exclusive vacation package, or bid on one of over 100 silent action prizes ranging from art and home decor to electronics and recreation packages.
