Bridge event at Pine Run
benefits Alzheimer’s Disease
Eight tables of focused card players in Doylestown joined bridge clubs across the country in raising money and heightening awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. Held on the summer solstice, Monday, June 20, 2016, at Pine Run Retirement Community, the marathon bridge event, known as “The Longest Day,” offers the pleasures of social camaraderie and mental challenge while also making a difference in fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
“Playing bridge is one of the ways we hope to keep sharp and hold fast to the memories lost for those facing Alzheimer’s,” said Jane Ball, ACBL member and tournament director. “The Longest Day echoes the daily experience of people grappling with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. We are glad to support a cause touching many residents at Pine Run and millions of families around the world.”
