Bunco Charity Event

Bunco 2017


Our 3rd annual Bunco was held on February 25, 2017, at Batavia Moose Lodge and a radically awesome time was had by all who attended! The theme this year was I love the 80s, Totally Rad Bunco.

This year’s event was almost at max capacity. Attendees enjoyed traveling back to the 80s listening to tunes from Bon Jovi and Cyndi Lauper to El Debarge and Stevie Wonder as well as noshing on refreshments from Enticing Cuisine or snacks like candy cigarettes. Raffles and mini games accompanied the main event, Bunco, as well. Both volunteers and attendees alike donned neon, leg warmers, acid-washed jeans or Flashdance-inspired gear and were met with many laughs. We had a wonderful time this year and we hope that all of our participants did as well!



Stay tuned for the Bunco 2018 (January or February) date!  Please feel free to contact us with any questions about this event at 630-282-3153 or email us at bunco@bataviamothersclub.org

Our 2nd Annual Bunco Charity Fundraiser was held on January 30, 2016, at the Batavia Moose Lodge (1535 S. Batavia Ave., Batavia, IL 60510). We had a wonderful turnout with this event selling out! Lots of fun was had by all with raffle prizes, silent auction, heads or tails game, door prizes, snacks, and a cash bar. We are grateful to our sponsors and to all of our participants for making this event such a wonderful success!

All money raised from this event and other events through the Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation go directly back to the community through the schools or local organizations that focus on helping children and families.

We hope you will join us again next year for this fun event.  Stay tuned for next year’s date!

Bunco 2015

The First Annual Bunco Charity Fundraiser was a huge success! Over 70 participants rolled the dice on February 7th, 2015, looking to win a variety of prizes including jewelry, wine, and gift certificates. They also enjoyed participating in a “heads or tails” fundraiser and a silent auction which included tickets to Blackhawks and Bulls games, golf outings, high-end Craftsman tools items, and spa/hotel stays. Participants also sampled fabulous food from Aliano’s Ristorante in Batavia and delicious desserts provided by The Party Kitchen in Geneva.

Fox Trot 5K and 10K



The 17th Annual Fox Trot 5K/10K race held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, was a smashing success and we want to thank all of our wonderful participants who help us to make this event the “friendliest race on the Fox River!”

It took place at the Batavia Riverwalk (Island Avenue & Houston Street in downtown Batavia).  Both the 5K and 10K featured courses along the beautiful Fox River. Kids also joined in on the fun, too!  The Fox Trot featured two non-competitive races designed especially for children.  The Junior Jog, for children in preschool, kindergarten, or first grade is approximately ¼ mile long.  Second through fifth graders were encouraged to try the Youth Run (1 mile).

Funds raised through this event will support local charities in the Fox Valley area, as well as Batavia schools.

We captured a few highlights from the race; more pictures can be found on our Flickr account:

 5K and 10K Race and Fun for the Whole Family

The 16th Annual Fox Trot 5K and 10K Race took place on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. at the Batavia Riverwalk (Island Avenue & Houston Street in downtown Batavia). The day’s events featured a 5K and a 10K race as well as the Kids’ Fun Runs. Over 300 runners came out to support our mission. The H.C. Storm Chorus started the race off with the singing of the national anthem and Batavia Academy of Dance provided a performance while runners awaited the results of the race.

This race could never have happened without the fantastic support of our sponsors, BMCF volunteers, and the dedicated runners, many of whom return year after year. Thank you to all who participated, volunteered, or supported this race!
