Black Tie Bingo

Saturday, March 4th, 2023 – A Fundraising Gala in Support of Guelph General Hospital

Presented by Co-operators and Meridian Credit Union

Co-chaired by Lynda Murray and Juliette Zhang

Black Tie Bingo is one of Guelph’s premier fundraising galas, raising funds to support Guelph General Hospital. Please join as we celebrate philanthropy and its role in providing world-class hospital care close to home for those who live in Guelph and Wellington County.

Lynda Murray, BTB 2023 Co-chair

With your generous participation at our 27th annual Black Tie Bingo, funds raised will support Guelph General Hospital’s surgical team, who are working to catch up with the backlog of procedures delayed by the pandemic. Surgical tables, specialized overhead lights, scopes and orthopaedic drills are some examples of the equipment that Black Tie Bingo will help fund this year.

In this time of great need at Guelph General Hospital, together, we can help set a new Black Tie Bingo fundraising record by exceeding $300,000 in net proceeds!

Juliette Zhang, BTB 2023 Co-chair

Join us in celebrating our inaugural recipients!
