A Bunco Themed Fundraiser

Bunco is an exciting game that can lead to hours of fun, so why not put the game to use and raise some money while having a bunco fundraiser blast. It’s an easy, fun, and rewarding way to raise money for the cause of your choice.

First, decide which charity or event you will be bunco fundraising for. Think of an amount you want to raise and keep that in mind when planning the bunco fundraiser. You will need to decide how many people you want to attend, how much the entry-fee is, and extras you can add to make the fundraiser more appealing.

When deciding the number of entries, be sure to keep the number divisible by 12 since each regular bunco game includes 12 players. If you decide to have 48 players at your bunco fundraiser, you will have 4 separate games. Knowing the number of people will also help decide the entry fee. If you want to raise $1200, each of the 48 players will have a $25 entry fee.

Make your bunco fundraiser enjoyable! You want your guests to enjoy themselves and to feel like they are donating to a good cause. Be sure to have plenty of information on the charity or event you are raising money for, in case the guests would like to know more. To keep the fun going, add some different events to the bunco game. You could have each chair numbered and have the guests pick a number out of a jar when they first arrive. The corresponding number and chair will be there first spot during the game. This will give the guests the opportunity to venture out and meet new people.

Adding a silent auction to your fundraising event is an excellent way to earn even more money. Talk with local businesses and see if they will donate gift cards, services, and items for the auction. Many large retailers commonly donate for fundraisers. You can also do a 50/50 raffle. Your guests are sure to enter this since they will have a chance of winning some money.

You can look to local businesses to donate food, drinks, and prizes for the bunco fundraiser event. If you cannot get businesses to donate, figure in an extra amount in the entry fee for snacks, drinks and small prizes. Having these available will make the bunco event more enjoyable. Keep the prizes low in cost, but fun. Gag gifts are a great way to stretch your dollar, and bring a smile to the winners face.

Finally, remember that you are doing this for a good cause and remember to enjoy yourself. Bunco is a fun and entertaining game that can help you, help those in need.
