The only free spaces to be found were on the Bingo cards. Another sold-out crowd – almost 500 people – packed the Sheraton Cavalier for the 2016 Black Tie Bingo.
The result was one impressive number – $228,000!
Proceeds will be used to provide hope for people with MS. Funds benefit the creation of an MS Clinical Research Chair in Saskatchewan. The Chair will inspire and coordinate research across the province into causes and treatments for MS with the ultimate goal of finding a cure. The Foundation is excited to hint that there will be some very good news about this campaign in the near future.
Funds also support the Foundation’s Equip for Excellence campaign. Equip for Excellence is a multi-million dollar campaign to improve every area of the hospital. By ensuring staff have the best equipment, technology and resources, you’ve helped a grandfather read to his granddaughter for the first time. You’ve helped a man return to work after a bilateral stroke. And you’ve helped an active women resume her life after knee surgery.
To all sponsors, supporters, volunteers and organizers of the Black Tie Bingo – and on behalf of the staff and patients of Saskatoon City Hospital – the Foundation says thank you!
