“LONGEST DAY” RAISES A RECORD $17,665 FOR ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION

LD TEAM

With 140 players in morning and afternoon bridge games, a silent auction, raffle, and donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations, the club’s Longest Day event June 19 has raised more than $17,500 for the Alzheimer’s Association. (Planners Dena Davis, Teresa Nelson, Judy Nelsen and Matt Farber shown). A huge thank-you to all who donated, volunteered and participated in Longest Day!
