Our two chosen charities are
McGrath Foundation & Cancer Council NSW
As Bingo continues to grow so has our responsibility to give back to the community and we are proud to support two fantastic Australian charities.
Cancer Council NSW
This charity raises money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, as well as to provide greater breast cancer awareness education for young women. We have sprayed one of our marrel skip bin trucks bright pink to publicly display our support and ongoing commitment to this charity.
This foundation works across every area of every cancer. Their main goal is to conduct and fund world-class research that will help beat cancer for good. We have dedicated one of our front lift commercial waste trucks to the Cancer Council NSW – giving it a pink makeover to symbolise our support.
Bingo’s involvement with these foundations came about when Bingo’s CEO, Daniel Tartak lost his aunt Rose, his mother’s sister, to breast cancer in March of 2014. Three months later in June 2016, he lost his aunt Mary to lung cancer.
It goes without saying that words cannot describe the devastation and sadness endured during this time. Although, words can describe what Bingo decided to do about it!
Paradise Garden 2016
This year, Bingo promised an even bigger, better and more prestigious event, “Paradise Garden” – held on Friday, 10th June 2016. The dinner was held at the Doltone House – Jones Bay Wharf, Sydney. Paradise Garden 2016 saw Channel 9’s Tim Gilbert MC the event, along with brilliant surprise entertainment from Guy Sebastian. There was also attendance and speeches from special guests including Mr Glenn McGrath AM – Co-Founder & President of McGrath Foundation, and Mr Peter Taylor – CFO of Cancer Council NSW, on behalf of their charities. We were prepared to raise even more money with targets and expectations set higher than our extravagant dinner in 2014.
“This year we want to put on a show of a lifetime, something they will never forget!” said Daniel Tartak, CEO of Bingo Industries.
Paradise Garden 2016 raised $302,000!
$151,000 was donated to McGrath Foundation and $151,000 was donated to Cancer Council NSW!
Magical Memories 2014
On Friday, 21st November 2014 Bingo Industries hosted a world class fundraising dinner event, “Magical Memories”. The event was an emotional and beautiful tribute to the late Rose and Mary. It saw Mr Glenn McGrath AM – Co-Founder & President of McGrath Foundation and Mr Jim L’Estrange – CEO of Cancer Council NSW, attend and speak as special guests on behalf of their respective charities. Needless to say the event was an absolute success.
Magical Memories 2014 raised $144,000!
$72,000 was donated to McGrath Foundation and $72,000 was donated to Cancer Council NSW!
