Hadassah-WIZO wins big with Bingo and Bagels

It has been quite some time since I last played Bingo as competitively as I did on Sunday. But I did it in support of Canadian Hadassah-Wizo's Ateret Chapter.

The 4th annual Bingo and Bagels fundraiser was held at Toronto's Beth Tzedek congregation and was once again a tremendously successful event. More than 200 participants came out to drop coloured discs on coloured cards for a chance to win prizes and for Canada's leading Jewish women's philanthropic and volunteer-driven organization. Proceeds from the day will fund a multitude of programs and projects for children, healthcare and women in Israel and Canada.

Before the game got started, and then during the breaks, smiles adorned most players' faces. If they did not manage to win the games, they noshed happily on bagels, artisan breads, various shmeres, baked goods and fruit platters. Congratulations from we here at Heebonics to the Ateret chapter organizers on a well executed and successful event.
