A Message from Black Tie Bingo 2024 Co-chairs

“We’re thrilled to Co-chair Black Tie Bingo for a second year, and continue to elevate the experience to offer guests what they have always loved most about this event – an elegant gala and dinner experience in support of Guelph General, with the unique twist of playing Bingo for prizes!

With the generous support of the community, we far exceeded our fundraising goal for BTB 2023. This year we invite our community to get involved once again to exceed this year’s goal of $330,000 to ensure the highest standard of healthcare is available close to home for everyone.”

-Lynda Murray & Juliette Zhang
