Knights of Columbus Ontario Fr. Granottier Council 2092 have raised over $40k for charity through 2021, after launching a radio bingo fundraising campaign that has spread to numerous communities in Grey County over the course of the past year.
Grey Highlands council approved the organization’s request to continue selling bingo tickets in the municipality on Jan. 5.
They have donated $20k to the Grey Bruce chapter of Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) in support of its youth programs, with another $20k currently earmarked for donation to them as well.
The bingo games are held each Wednesday on CFOS 560 (AM radio) after the 2 p.m. news.
At available locations, bingo tickets are sold in packets of three for $20.
Within the Grey Highlands, tickets are available for purchase at Murray’s Print Shop and Raine’s Barber Shop in Markdale, Home Hardware in Flesherton, and the Feversham Heritage General Store.
