Bunco for Breast Cancer

Bunco is an easy and fun dice game that anyone can learn. Our 13th annual Amador County Bunco for Breast Cancer event featured "The Spirit of the Olympics". The event raises funds to help local women on the breast cancer journey with free wigs, support groups, transportation and other services. This fun event features gourmet desserts, a cash raffle, costume contest, amazing auctions, and of course plenty of Bunco play!

Our 13-year fundraising total for our bunco events is over $213,000. Hats off to the marvelous committee and volunteers who always make this evening so special! We would also like to thank our local merchants and individuals for their amazingly generous donations.

Mark your calendars for next year's event: April 13, 2018. The theme will be "Welcome to our Beach Party!" 

For more information, please contact Amador STARS at 267-1246.
