Members of the Golden Isles Duplicate Bridge Club recently participated in bridge matches that ran all day long, from early morning to late at night as part of “The Longest Day,” a nationwide event that benefits the Alzheimer’s Foundation. The event was held at the Golden Isles Duplicate Bridge Club building on St. Simons Island.

Local participants raised $2,400 in the all-day, nationwide event sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge Club. This year, social bridge players also participated in the fundraiser.

“Everyone agrees that this is quite a festive event,” said event chair Carolyn Bliven. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were served. Donations are added to the table fees, plus proceeds from a drawing, to generate a substantial amount of money for research and other programs for Alzheimer’s.
