Delta Bingo & Gaming Patrons and Staff raise over $50,000 to help residents of Fort McMurray.

Oakville, ON – July 11, 2016

Patrons and staff of Delta Bingo & Gaming raised over $50,000 last month for the Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal through a recent campaign aimed at providing support to those affected by the devastating wildfires in Alberta earlier this spring.

For three consecutive Fridays in June, all Delta Bingo and Boardwalk Gaming locations across Ontario hosted “Fort McMurray Fridays”, where all snack bar sales were donated to the Canadian Red Cross.

“When a disaster such as this occurs we know we have to do something to help”, says Cam Johnstone, President, Delta Bingo & Gaming “The response to our Fort McMurray Fridays was terrific. Our players were eager to offer their support and were extremely generous in their contributions. We are happy we can make this donation to help rebuild the lives of the individuals and families whose homes were destroyed by these devastating wildfires.”

MEDIA INVITATION – July 13th at 11:30am, Delta Bingo & Gaming – 483 Speers Road.

Join us this July 13th at 11:30am, for a cheque presentation. The $51,216 raised by Delta Bingo & Gaming patrons and staff will be presented to the Canadian Red Cross.
