Hundreds Expected For Third Annual Tournament

I have been blessed to meet a group of local women who truly inspire me.  This group is dynamic!  Not only do they juggle the needs of their families, but they are fully committed to helping find a cure and raise awareness for breast cancer through their non-profit, Rolling For Pink.

Rolling For Pink (formerly known as Bunko For Breast Cancer) started as a group of women who initially met playing Bunko, a dice game.  They decided to do their part to help the cause in the most fun way they knew how - a big Bunko tournament.  How fun!

Over the past two years, with nearly 500 total tournament participants, RFP has proudly donated nearly $50,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Their goal this year is to raise more than the 2010 Tournament/Auction total of $25,000.  The Southern California-based RFP was founded as a non-profit organization three years ago after its executive directors and board members experienced countless family and friends being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Sue Stonehouse, Founder and Executive Director, Rolling For Pink, said: “We want to do our part to find a cure and raise awareness for breast cancer and we can do that with your help. RFP may be a small group but we are BIG fighters and yes, cancer struck us but we won’t let cancer beat us.”

This Saturday, June 25th at 1 PM Rolling For Pink is back for the third annual tournament at a private residence in Camarillo, California.  Guests can play Bunko, enjoy food and beverages from local vendors while helping find a cure and raise awareness for breast cancer.  Even non-players will have a good time, so come out and support an important cause.  There will also be a raffle and silent auction!  All net proceeds from the tournament will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.  If you can't attend, consider making an online donation.

  • Registration is open, $75 per person, and space is limited.
