On Saturday, June 21, the four Bridge Clubs of the Sun Cities (Sun City Duplicate Bridge, Kiva Duplicate Bridge Club of Sun City West, Sun City Grand Bridge Club, and the Corte Bella Bridge Club) are uniting to run two sanctioned ACBL Bridge Sessions and one Social Contract Bridge Session to raise money to support Alzheimer’s research and care through The Longest Day event.
All session fees will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. In addition, tax deductible donation opportunities will be provided throughout the day by check or credit card.
Registration for the ACBL Sanctioned Duplicate Games will be at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The Social Bridge Game registration will begin at 1:30 pm.

Research has supported the idea that mental activity, such as bridge, can play a role in reducing the effects of Alzheimer’s. In addition to the funds raised at the games, the ACBL is donating all of the table fees to the Alzheimer’s Association. The American Contract Bridge League has joined with the Alzheimer’s Association in an annual fund raising event. Bridge clubs all across North America hold special games in support of this worthy endeavor on June 21.
