(Oct. 24, 2014) Mah Jongg all day long in a tournament on Thursday, Oct. 30 at the Golden Sands Resort on 109th Street in Ocean City.
A registration fee of $30 is required to guarantee a spot and it must be received by Saturday, Oct. 25. There will be no sign-ups at the door. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. the day of the event and play starts at 10 a.m.
“The event has grown in six years; our first year we only had 34 players, this year we have over 100 and every year we have a lot of fun,” said Darlene Botts, the event organizer. “People from Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey are playing in the tournament. It is very exciting to see the event gain popularity.”
The $30 donation goes directly to the American Cancer Society and will include a continental breakfast, lunch, door prizes and the tournament. First, second and third place winners will receive gift certificates. Raffle tickets for a Pink Ribbon Mah Jongg set cost $10.
All levels of play are welcome at the tournament, which brings people together with a light competition added in, Botts said. They follow the National Mah Jongg League rules.
“The best part of this event is how we give back to the American Cancer Society and the generosity of businesses in the area. Every $30 we receive goes directly to the organization to fight cancer. The Golden Sands Resort donates their venue, food and banquet room. All of the prizes we give out are donated too,” said Botts.
