A partnership between the ACBL and the Alzheimer’s Association

Join us for the 4th annual The Longest Day fundraising event supporting Alzheimer’s disease care and research. Held on Monday, June 20, 2016, the longest day of the year, this event symbolizes the difficult journey of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Clubs, teachers, tournaments and players are invited to form fundraising teams and hold special games (upgraded masterpoints), teach lessons, conduct raffles and beyond.

Show your support by registering as an official fundraising team with the Alzheimer’s Association, donating to a bridge team, participating in The Longest Day games and lessons – or all three! You’ll be honoring the more than 35 million people worldwide who are living with Alzheimer’s and countless caregivers who face this disease. And by playing bridge, you’ll show the world there is a fun game that may help slow the onset of this disease.

Canadian clubs, teachers and members – join us for the first ever, Trump Alzheimer’s fundraiser.

New in 2016, the ACBL has worked with the Canadian Bridge Federation and the Alzheimer Society of Canada to create a special even just for our Canadian members. Trump Alzheimer’s is also held on Monday, June 20, 2016 and offers all the benefits the ACBL provides The Longest Day. The main difference is that the Alzheimer Society of Canada will insure that all funds donated will stay in your Province!

Registration for Trump Alzheimer’s opens March 2016. For questions regarding this event contact darbi.padbury@acbl.org or our Canadian team leader, Kathie Macnab Halliday at kmacnab@eastlink.ca
