Rotary Club’s Black Tie Bingo is back!

Oct. 30 event supports Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre

Worldwide, with over 1.2 million members, the Rotary Club is comprised of neighbours, friends, and community leaders who have joined forces to ‘create positive, lasting change in our communities.’

In keeping their pledge to make a difference around the world, the Red Deer Rotary Club is hosting their 27th Black Tie Bingo charity event.

“Our charity of choice is the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre,” says Dean Williams, Rotary member and head of ticket sales.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a non-profit organization devoted to the protection and recovery of children, giving them a safe haven to share their stories of abuse, to be heard without judgement, and to have support in seeking justice.

“A number of years ago,” adds Dean, “We made a multi-year commitment to mental health initiatives and this is a continuation of that commitment.”

Held at the Cambridge Hotel & Conference Centre on Wednesday, Oct. 30, the evening offers an array of activities and plenty of chances to win both money and prizes while supporting an important cause.

“There is a live auction and a silent auction,” says Dean. “One of the things that’s unique about our dinners is that we play Bingo, so you can win some pretty nice prizes without having to fork out any extra money. They could go home with something pretty flashy.”

While formal attire is preferred, Dean says there’s no pressure to dress up.

“A lot of years we do a theme,” he says. “You get everything from tuxedos to western formal. We try to have fun with it.”

Sponsored by Earl’s, the evening offers cocktails and a gourmet dinner, silent and live auctions, a photo booth, games, and a host of dream prizes.
