WINGO took place on Thursday, March 16th at Knollwood Country Club in West Bloomfield. Over 400 women came out to ORT Michigan’s Women’s only BINGO fundraiser. This high energy “girls-night out” attracts professionals, business owners, and stay-at-home moms of all generations from Walled Lake to Bloomfield Hills, from Birmingham to Huntington Woods. Most attendees have school-aged children or grandchildren and are the main decision makers in the majority of the purchases relating to their household, cars, education, health care, banking, and life choices.
Over $1,600 in BINGO prizes were awarded, including a Grand Prize of $250, with 30 raffles that included many $50 gift certificates to local retailers. The 50/50 raffle winner took home $850! The event included a silent auction, raffles, a strolling dinner, and desserts. Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital also provided guests the opportunity to make their own aromatherapy sachets.
WINGO generated nearly $60,000 for ORT’s educational programs, a portion of which will support art therapy programs, helping at-risk students overcome emotional, social, and behavioral barriers and improve academic achievements.
We look forward to seeing you next year at WINGO, taking place on Thursday, March 15, 2018.
