Supporting Pickering Community

From Durham Region Women at Pickering, Ontario on 25/02/2020

Members of the Durham Region Women and Durham South Men’s Club participated in a cheque presentation at the Delta Bingo Hall in Pickering Ontario. The event was to celebrate an important milestone in the Pickering community, raising $13.2 M to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations in our community.  The revitalization of charitable gaming has resulted in sustaining essential programs in the Pickering community and enhancing the services across Durham Region.

The event was attended by Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board and MPP Pickering-Uxbridge, Lindsey Park, MPP Durham, Maurice Brenner, City Councillor for the city of Pickering, David Fraser, Senior Director of Charitable Gaming at OLG and Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association.

As representatives of the Canadian Progress Club, we are proud to be a part of the revitalization efforts within the Pickering Community!
