INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY AT THE CATHEDRAL BRANCH
March 8, 2019
With 100 International Women’s Day bingo cards sold out, everyone was excited to celebrate, raise money for charity and hoped they were in possession of the winning card.
On March 8th bingo buzz was apparent all over the office. Participants could be heard talking about what numbers they still needed, who was close to a black-out card and were even seen visiting Jennifer Gibson’s office, the Bingo Master, to ask when the next number was going to be emailed out.
At the end of the day, James Schikkerling walked away with the grand prize after being the first participant to reach a black-out card.
International Women’s Day at the Cathedral branch brought out everyone’s purple wardrobe, friendly, competitive spirit and gave us a chance to support the Dixon Transition Society by donating half of the proceeds from bingo card sales, which will be matched by the Raymond James Canada Foundation.
For the past 13 years the Cathedral branch has been supporting the Dixon Transition Society, a local non-profit organization that provides transitional housing, counselling programs and resources for women and their children escaping domestic violence.
