Black Tie Bingo 2020!

The 24th Annual Black Tie Bingo – Le Cirque, presented by The Co-operators and Meridian Credit Union was the most successful BTB to date!

A new record was set with the event raising $300,000 net of expenses, exactly the amount needed to fund thirty additional Medication Safety Carts, completing the Hospital’s most significant medication safety initiative.

These new carts will impact each and every patient that comes into our hospital.

Black Tie Bingo truly embodies what we do at the Foundation: we help save lives and improve health, together with our community. On Saturday March 7th, 2020, over 450 guests came together in support of the Hospital, alongside many new and returning sponsors, nearly 150 prize donors, as well in-kind service and product providers, and dozens of volunteers.

Thanks to all who contributed to this incredible success, helping Guelph General transform the way they deliver medications to patients and to provide the safest and highest quality care possible.

We’re already planning the 25th annual Black Tie Bingo!

For the 25th annual Black Tie Bingo, we plan to set the bar even higher. We want to create the most memorable Black Tie Bingo for our guests, and we want the 25th annual to have the biggest impact on patient care yet. Will you partner with us?

Every piece of patient care equipment at Guelph General Hospital comes from a caring 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 on the lives of people within our community when they are in the 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.
