All bridge players are invited to attend the Fort Wayne Duplicate Bridge Club’s “Longest Day” event on June 19 to help support the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Indiana. The day will begin with a light breakfast (8:30 AM) and rubber bridge game (9 AM) with money prizes for individual winners. Open and 0-299 MP duplicate games with extra masterpoints for winners will start at 1 PM. Besides donating part of the game fees ($10 morning game, $5 afternoon), the club will raise money from business and player donations, a silent auction and a raffle at the event. The “Longest Day” will be held at 4618 E. State Blvd., Ste. 100, in Fort Wayne. Learn more or sign up for a game at fortwaynebridge.org or by calling Stan Davis at 260-479-0458. Morning game players are asked to reserve a place in advance by calling Dena Davis at 260-479-0419.
“We’d like to raise more than the $12,600 the club donated last year to the Alzheimer’s Association,” says board president Stan Davis. “To reach this goal, we also encourage any businesses, foundations, or individuals who want to donate funds or silent auction items to do so.” For more information about donation opportunities, call Stan Davis at 260-479-0458. Checks should be made out to the Alzheimer’s Association and sent to the Bridge Club at the address above. All donors will receive receipts for tax purposes.
