Held in January each year, Bunco for Books is our newest event!

Bunco is a dice game made popular in America the 1920s as an oft raided parlour game.
Bunco is so simple, anyone can play. Including YOU! (Don’t worry- we’ll teach you everything we know!)

This year’s event was held January 24, 2019 at VFW Post 2872 on Sunset Drive in Athens, with a second event schedule for March 21, 2019 at Elberton Country Club in Elberton, GA. Doors will open at 5:30 pm, and we will wrap up around 8:30 pm. Tickets are available now for just $25 and include food, game play, and silent auction admission

Admission is limited to 100 guests for the Elberton event, so get your tickets early!

In 2018, our Bunco for Books event hosted nearly 100 guests for hours of gaming fun. Between tickets sold and our great silent auction, the 2018 event helped Books for Keeps raise over $7000. And this year, we surpassed our goal of raising over $10,000!

We are excited to expand our silent auction offerings this year to accommodate a wide range of interests, with everything from a night out on the town to a private photography session.
