Bunco 4 Boobies – Women Rolling 4 A Cure

On Sunday, March 21st, we had (what we are hoping to be) our 1st Annual Bunco 4 Boobies fundraiser at Longfellow’s Restaurant for Kelly Fourman,  The Cancer Association of Darke County, and the Fight Against Breast Cancer.  It was a huge success as women all across the area and even neighboring counties came to support, honor, and remember those women in our lives who are fighting against Breast Cancer.

The idea of the fundraiser came about when Kelly Fourman, a member of an Arcanum area Bunco Group was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.   Bunco is a mindless dice game that has brought so many women together in our area, so we thought it would be a great chance to raise money for the awareness and the fight against Breast Cancer and our way of letting Kelly know we love her, support her and we will fight with her.

The day started with great fellowship as all the women joined in wearing Pink and got ready to Roll 4 a Cure!  As the games started, there were sponsored tables in memory and in honor of our loved ones; there were tons of door prizes sponsored from local area businesses and home franchises and there were raffles for larger prizes such as a Dell Mini Netbook and a Fitness Package donated by Good Samaritan North.

We are proud to announce that for our 1st annual Bunco 4 Boobies – we were able to hand over a check for $3,200 to The Cancer Association of Darke County. We hope we can continue this every March. Be sure to look for information!! [In picture: Missy Pohl, Jessica Artz, a guy named Warren of CADC, Karin Baker, Kelly Fourman]
