A partnership between the ACBL and the Alzheimer’s Association
Join us for the 3rd annual The Longest Day fundraising event supporting Alzheimer’s disease care and research! In the last two years bridge players have donated more than $1 million to help fight Alzheimer’s in both the United States and Canada.
Held on Sunday, June 21, 2015, the longest day of the year, this event symbolizes the difficult journey of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. For the 2015 The Longest Day event, the ACBL is extending the approved participation day to include Monday, June 22. .
Show your support by registering your club as an official “team”, donating to a bridge club team, participating in The Longest Day games – 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.
