DARKE COUNTY-Bunco For Boobies donated $27,000 of its $34,000 proceeds from the recent 10th event to the Cancer Association of Darke County (CADC).
The remainder of the proceeds will be going to 11 private donations, four of them being children, according to Bunco For Boobies President Jessica Artz.
“When we started, we thought it would be a one-time deal, and now 10 years later….,” Artz said. “This year was most stressful. We wanted to make it special since this was the tenth year and do things we hadn’t done before. Family and friends pulled off this major event.”
“This tireless group of ladies have once again gone above and beyond to make this a very successful event,” said Christine Lynn, executive director of the CADC. “The Cancer Association of Darke County is most appreciative of this very generous donation that will help our cancer patients in their difficult struggle to overcome such a serious illness.”
She went on, “We wish to thank everyone who worked so hard to host this great fund-raiser. As always, there was a lot of laughter and some tears as well at the event. So rewarding in so many ways.”
Lynn also extended appreciation to all the people for attending that day and “making this a great day for our patients.”
“From our patients, our board of directors, the treasurer and myself, we say thank you and may God bless you,” Lynn concluded.
