Unico Delmarva Chapter plans bocce tournament Sept. 14
Unico Delmarva, a local Unico National Chapter, will hold a bocce tournament starting at noon, Saturday, Sept. 14, in Millsboro.
This will be the chapter’s first fundraising event. Proceeds will be donated to local and national charities to help causes such as cancer research, mental health, Cooley’s anemia and scholarships. Unico National donated more than $50,000 to cancer research and more than $65,000 for scholarships to students all over the nation, including Delaware, this year.
Unico also honors citizens who have distinguished themselves in military service, scientific research, community and charitable service, and the promotion of Italian language, heritage and culture.
The Sept. 14 event will feature two- to four-person teams with an entry fee of $40. One-half of the proceeds will go to prizes for the top three teams.
The event is open to players, family members and friends. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. In case of rain, the tournament will be held Sept. 15.
