Bunco Game Night
Sacramento
5:30pm-10:00pm

*** Please RSVP by May 14 ***
 
Bunco is a simple, fun game with dice, teams, rounds, scoring points and multiple winners. Actually, it is a popular pretext for ladies to get together, chat and gossip, enjoy good food and drink, and just have a great time. If you don’t know how to play, don’t worry. Bunco is very easy to learn and does not require any skill or talent. You’ll be playing and having fun in no time. There are prizes for the winners and maybe the famous Gems pink Bunco pig will make an appearance.

Bunco game night is being held at the same venue as January’s Holiday Hangover and Shoe Extravaganza. It is a comfortable and private clubhouse with plenty of room to stretch out and socialize before. The exact location, a detailed map and parking information will be provided after you RSVP. For those who need a place to change, a private residence on-site will be made available upon request.

The cost to attend is $10 per person with a $5 discount for those with paid Gems memberships. Payment is at the door and cash, check or credit cards are accepted. Non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. You are welcome to bring an optional pot luck dish for sharing and your own wine or beer. A kitchen will be available for simple preparation purposes. There is an optional donation of a few extra dollars towards the main cash prize.

Please RSVP by Thursday, May 14. If you do not want to play Bunco, you are welcome to attend and watch. To request more information or to RSVP, please send an email message to activities (at) rivercitygems (dot) org.

Sacramento Pride
Capitol Mall between 3rd and 7th Street
11:00am-5:00pm

Once again the River City Gems will have an information booth at the Sacramento Pride Festival, along with about 200 other exhibitors, vendors and entertainers. Pride is not only for the LGBTQ community, but for everyone.

The parade starts at 11 am and travels towards the Capitol along N Street between 3rd and 10th Streets. The festival area is on the Capitol Mall between 3rd and 7th Streets. There is no cost to attend the parade, but entrance to the festival area costs $10. The ticket proceeds goes to support the Sacramento LGBT Community Center. There is street and garage parking in the area, but it's not free ($2.50-3.00 per hour is typical). There is a Light Rail station immediately next to the festival area.

After the Pride festival is over and the Gems' booth is packed away, there will be a casual dinner at 7 pm within easy walking distance of the festival area. Anyone is welcome to join us at the dinner even if you didn't attend Pride.

If you would like to attend the dinner or have specific questions about any of the Gems' activities at Sac Pride, please send an email to activities (at) rivercitygems (dot) org. However, if you just want to stop by the Gems booth to visit us then no RSVP is required.
