Black Tie Bingo – In a Box!

Presented by The Co-operators and Meridian Credit Union.

On March 6th, 2021, we welcomed 369 guests and raised $261,850!

Black Tie Bingo – In a Box marked 25 continuous years of Black Tie Bingo in support of Guelph General Hospital.

The pandemic forced us to adapt our fundraising gala to a virtual event for guests to enjoy from the comfort and safety of their home.

Together with the support of our guests, sponsors, in-kind providers of product and service, donors of live and silent auction prizes, and our dedicated planning committee and event volunteers, we succeeded!

Black Tie Bingo – Impact to date:

To date, Black Tie Bingo has raised over $3.8 million in net proceeds to fund essential patient care equipment at Guelph General Hospital. Equipment purchases have included everything from operating room scopes to our digital mammography machine, our MRI scanner, laparoscopic towers, specialized ICU beds, and most recently in 2021, technological advances in Guelph General Hospital’s vascular and breast cancer surgical program.
