The Longest Day is a partnership between the ACBL and the Alzheimer’s Association. This year, 2017, is the fifth annual Longest Day fundraising event supporting Alzheimer’s disease care and research. Clubs throughout the United States create their own experiences as they raise funds and participate in an activity they love; almost everyone has been touched by this disease and our club wanted to help this cause. This year our PebbleCreek Sanctioned Bridge club held our Longest Day game event on Tuesday, June 20; our club collected items donated by our members for a raffle starting in March of this year, including donations of money. The total raised from our events was $3000, all given to the Alzheimer’s Association. A special thanks to Marlene Wickizer, Mary Lou Cralle, Syd Mersereau, Jackie Wielgosz, JoAnn Enyeart, Rosemary Vana, Sue Woodard and Judy Laxineta for their decorations, snacks, favors and hard work for making this event such a big success.
