Ladies Bunco Night - for a cause!

There's no better way to meet friendly faces, support a great cause, and relax on a Thursday than joining us for (young adult) 
Ladies Bunco Night!

Whether you're a seasoned Bunco Player or have never even heard of it, we'd love to have you. (In case you're wondering, Bunco is a dice game using total luck and no skill!)

We'll provide light nosh and drink and everything you need to play Bunco - you just bring your crew! Games are typically played with 12 people, so sign up alone or with a friend, and we'll introduce you to an awesome group to play with.

Half of the cost* of your ticket will help support the Southeast Michigan Congenital Heart Walk, benefiting the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) and The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF), amazing organizations that benefit those affected by congenital heart disease. 

Cortney Brooke Barnett will speak a bit about the walk, and her personal journey with congenital heart disease. 

Register here!

Huge thanks to our wonderful Host Committee, Alyssa Levin, Randal Feldman, and Tara Schonberger!

*Thanks to the generosity of The Well’s donors, we are able to offer a subsidized price.

County’s Family-Focused Juvenile Drug Court

experience related to opioid issues
-Dr. Shawn Achtman, a pain doctor who specializes in
physical medicine and rehabilitation

Our evening will open with Josh Roberts sharing his personal story of addiction and recovery, and we'll also have the chance to explore Jewish wisdom that can inform our reaction and response to the opioid epidemic with The Well's Rabbinic Intern Jeff Dreifus. 

No cost to attend due to the generosity of donors. Join us!
