Day of Bridge Benefitting Alzheimer Societies in Canada 2022

Day of Bridge games can be held online or at in person clubs this year. Any virtual games held on BBO June 18 and June 19 will be considered “Longest Day” games and will support the Alzheimer Society.
Clubs that have returned to face-to-face play can choose a day June 19 through June 26 to hold a Day of Bridge game. Money raised and sanction fees collected will be sent to provincial Alzheimer Societies.
Many players may want to make special donations to the Alzheimer Society and these can be done in different ways.
