BINGO FUNDRAISING

About Charitable Gaming

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is working in collaboration with the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association and the Commercial Gaming Association Ontario to revitalize charitable bingo in the province by offering electronic games in bingo halls with a portion of the proceeds going to charities.

The K-W Navy League has a long history of fundraising the corps through our volunteer shares of charitable gaming. The money that we receive covers the majority of corps building and training requirements for each year. 

The two local organizations that we are volunteering with are:
