A partnership between the ACBL and the Alzheimer’s Association

Join us for the second year of our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association on The Longest Day! In 2013, more than 160 ACBL bridge clubs and tournaments participated in the event and succeeded in raising more than $575,000. Don’t miss out on your chance to join the fun while raising funds! Help us reach our goal of $750,000 donated on The Longest Day.

The Longest Day is a sunrise-to-sunset event to raise funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Held on June 21, 2014, the longest day of the year, this event asks participants to push themselves to complete approximately 16 hours of a consecutive activity – such as playing bridge. It’s one day to honor the strength and courage displayed by people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers every day.

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.
