Dear MBU Friends and Family,

 

We are passionate about the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and about the game of duplicate bridge. That’s why on the Longest Day, June 21, 2019,  the Metropolitan Bridge Unit will host two games, one at 10 am and the other after lunch, at about 2 pm, to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association.


The Longest Day is the day with the most light — the summer solstice.  And it’s the day the Alzheimer’s Association calls on everyone to fight Alzheimer’s disease by raising funds and awareness for care, support and research.

By supporting the MBU on The Longest Day, we can stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s.  Can we count on you to help by making a donation?


The Alzheimer’s Foundation has created a web page to facilitate donations to be credited to the MBU.  Please click here to visit the MBU fundraising page and give today. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,
Lynda Straker, MBU President
