Thank you for a successful Longest Day

June 19-20, 2021 - The Longest Day fundraiserOn Saturday, June 19, and Sunday, June 20, Newtown Bridge Club held our 5th Longest Day (our 2nd year as a virtual fundraiser) to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association with 2 days of bridge games and a 1-day Scrabble tournament. Sixty-six virtual tables played in the online bridge games. Thirty-four players from 3 countries and 16 states competed in the Scrabble events, with a Connecticut high school student winning the Youth Tournament and Connecticut 5th grader winning their division in the Night Bird event. Thanks to the generosity of our members, players and community over $5,700 has been raised for the Alzheimer's Association so far.

It's not too late to make a donation. Checks payable to the Alzheimer's Association with a note that it is for Team Newtown Bridge Club may be mailed to The Longest Day, PO Box 6804, Hagerstown, MD 21741-6804 or you can click here to donate directly to the Alzheimer’s Association on behalf of the Newtown Bridge Club team.
