BUNCO NIGHT this Saturday, February 9

Bunco

Join Region 2 for a night of winter blues-busting fun at St. Paul UCC in Columbia. Play BUNCO and support DuBois Center and Kindercottage – all at the same time! Bunco is an exciting dice game that is easy to learn; children as young as 10 or 11 can be successful and have fun. Doors open at 6:30 pm; play begins at 7 pm. Cost to play is $10 per person. 

This year Bunco Night is being paired with an effort to “Fill the Cupboard” at Kindercottage. By February, the major food collection holidays are a distant memory and cupboards need restocking. Fun, fellowship and service!

Help spread the word; invite everyone you know! Click here for a flyer to share.

Bunco Recap

Thank You

THANKS to everyone who turned out for a great evening of family fun on February 24. It truly was a family affair. In fact, one young man – about 7 years old with a hot winning streak – was there with his parents and sister from Zion UCC in Marion and his grandparents and aunt from Maeystown. Thanks to Region 2 for sponsoring the event, St. Paul UCC – Columbia for hosting, and all the pastors who supported it. They were there in force – playing, facilitating and MCing. Thanks to the church members and friends who organized and set-up, those who made and donated gift baskets, prizes and snacks, and those who came and played and donated food items.

Between admission fees, the silent auction, a 50-50 drawing and other donations a total of $1,487 was raised for DuBois Center and 323 food items were collected! The group with the most “players” in attendance won the honor of selecting the recipients of the collection. Uni-Pres Kindercottage received 285 of the items; the emergency pantry at St. Paul UCC received 38 items that were less appropriate for Kindercottage.
