Rock and Roll Bingo fundraiser nets $5,000 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

Royal LePage RCR Realty sales representative Trish Condo and Scotiabank branch manager Frank Macellaio announce the fundraising total for Trish’s Rock and Roll Bingo for Shelter fundraising event.

Trish Condo of Royal LePage RCR Realty in Bolton, ON hosted 80 guests for an evening of Rock and Roll inspired bingo in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.

“The concept is similar to the old game show ‘Name That Tune,’’’ said Condo. “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.
