Bunco Policies for Fundraising

Bunco is easy to learn and requires no skill. The beauty of this is that while we play, we talk: We talk about our dry cracked heels and our husbands' latest home improvement miracle or mishap. We catch up on each other's kids' latest triumph or trouble. We share an easy recipe our family loved or a tip for removing permanent marker from linoleum floors. We talk about school, church, soccer and relationships. We confess our weaknesses and try not to boast our strengths.

Bunco provides a release. It's a time I can laugh out the stress and frustration that comes with everyday life.  It is also a way to give back to the community – helping a different non-profit each month.

The game "Bunco" does not necessarily require one to part with their money, but when we organize each month we will have to buy prizes.   These can be simple gifts from Bath & Body, corporate logo wear or a bottle of wine. 

Bunco is played in rounds with 4 players at each table. For each round, the dice is passed around the table as each player tries to roll for points. Play stops when someone from the head table reaches 21, or rolls a Bunco.

It's not a big job, but can be a lot of fun. By breaking the responsibilities into easy steps, you can be on your way to hosting Bunco and helping your organization raise money.

This is an opportunity to bring awareness to your non-profit and enjoy the evening with friends and family and meeting new friends.  It is a win-win!!
