CALLING ALL BRIDGE PLAYERS TO 'LONGEST DAY' GAMES JUNE 19 - INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

LD Chairs (1)

There’s fun for everyone at the FWDBC’s “Longest Day” event on Wednesday, June 19, to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association’s research and service programs. Last year the FWDBC raised more than $12,600, and we’d like to give even more in 2019 to help those coping with this dreadful disease. (2019 ‘Longest Day’ chairs shown). Here’s what you can do:

Please invite your bridge playing friends to a light breakfast (8:30 AM) and rubber bridge game (9 AM) on the morning of June 19. Half the $10 cost will go to cash prizes for individual winners, while the rest will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. Players can also participate in the raffle and silent auction going on that day, and new players will be given a free pass to any 0-299 MP duplicate game (assuming eligibility) at the club. Even if you'll be playing in the afternoon, you can also play in the morning.

Play in the afternoon duplicate game—with extra masterpoints for winners in open and 0-299 sections-- at 1 PM. But come early to buy raffle tickets and bid on silent auction items from restaurant gift cards and bridge books to official TinCaps hats. You’ll also enjoy Jim Kart’s delicious homemade pies. We’ll let you know as more auction items are listed!

Finally, those who want to donate privately can write a check to the Alzheimer’s Association and give it to Bob Enyeart. All financial donations will be acknowledged for tax purposes.

See details for both morning and afternoon events here.
