Shiver me timbers, be ready to set sail for Bunco Hidden Treasures on Saturday, April 1.  Bring your Matey and enjoy an exciting afternoon of Bunco, snacks and a raffle at the City of Santa Clarita’s The Centre, located 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.  The Special Olympics Bunco Tournament registration opens at 1:30 p.m. and games begin promptly at 2:30 p.m.  Join us for our pirate-themed tournament: Come dressed as pirate attire and have a great time while supporting Special Olympics Santa Clarita & Tri-Valley!  Sign up at sosc.org/bunco or call 661-253-2121 to sign up.  Attendance costs $40 donation per person.  Space is limited.  Sign up soon or you’ll be asked to “Walk the Plank.”
Bunco is a game of dice, luck and prizes.  Under its original name of 8-Dice Cloth, the game was played in England during the 18th Century, although it wasn’t known in the United States until 1855.  Throughout its history, Bunco has created a tradition of bringing communities together for lively social gatherings.  Playing Bunco is great way to maintain relationships and make new friends.  Ahoy Matey!
“This is an outstanding opportunity for the community to come together and support a great cause,” said Mark McCorkle, Bunco Committee Chair.  “Bunco is a fun game anyone can play with no experience.  Bottom line: We’re helping some terrific athletes.”
If you would like to take part in raising awareness and funds but cannot attend our spectacular event, you can still help change the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities by making a donation.  Various sponsorship opportunities are available.  We are looking for raffle items, auction items and sponsorships including “Support an Athlete.”
