If happiness is yelling, “bingo!” then singing it for charity must bring on a whole new level of excitement.
“The concept is similar to the old game show Name That Tune,’’ Condo said. “The DJ plays short clips and the bingo cards are made up of the names of the songs. People were up dancing, singing along to the music and having a great time!”
Guest speaker David Quinton representing local women’s shelter, Family Transition Place, drove home the importance of fundraising for emergency women’s shelters. As a former OPP officer and a past board member of the shelter, Quinton was able to share first hand stories of the incredible difference Family Transition Place has made in the lives of the women and children it serves.
Between ticket sales, draw prizes and a generous matching gift from the local Scotiabank branch, more than $5,000 was raised for Condo’s participation in the upcoming Iceland Challenge for Shelter. To be eligible to participate in this 100 km trek across Iceland, each trekker must raise at least $5,000 for their local women’s shelter and the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
