It’s Bunko time! Tickets available here

Join us on Friday, November 13th for the Annual Bunko Parties at the Park Ridge Country Club!

Click here for tickets!

According to the World Bunko Association the game had seen a resurgence in popularity in the United States in the early 21st century. In 2006, it was claimed that during the previous year (in the USA) “over 59 million women have played Bunco and over 27 million play regularly”.  As it is played today, bunco is a social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill (there are no decisions to be made), scoring and a simple set of rules.  The object of the game is to accumulate points and to roll certain combinations.  It’s easy to play and to learn.  Beginners are welcome!

Come be a part of a fun filled event organized by the Auxiliary of the Center of Concern.  Get some friends together for lots of laughs!
