RFP 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.
Over the past three years, with nearly 750 total tournament participants, RFP has proudly donated $75,000 to a major cancer research group, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Their goal this year was to surpass last year’s Tournament/Auction total and reach the total of $100,000 donated to the BCRF.
Having watched my friend Janet fight and struggle through breast cancer this past year, I felt inspired to round up a group to participate in this tournament where all proceeds are donated to finding a cure. Who knew helping fight this icky battle could be put in such a fabulously fun context?

Their pink shirts were adorned on the back with funny breast cancer sayings, like “Free Second Opinions,” “Save the Jigglies,” “Local CSI: Cup Size Inspector,” "Save Second Base," and “If you are reading this I can’t see your boobs”. At one point, it felt like a Mexican vacation with one Bunko Boy saddled up and ready to pour shots!
|Down the hatch! OLE!|
|Nice prize! It makes you wish you were a loser!|
