Our Team Story

 From the beginning of the ACBL and Alzheimer's Association partnership, volunteers across the DMV have come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's disease during The Longest Day. In the past three years, Bridge Heroes has raised $100,000 playing bridge during the Longest Week. We have been the biggest fundraiser for the National Capital Area Chapter.  We have been a significant part of ACBL's  raising over $6 million for care, support, and research efforts. Please consider, if you are able, making a donation today. The world may have stopped due to COVID-19, but unfortunately Alzheimer's and other dementia has not and the virus's impact has been devastating on those living with the disease and their caregivers.

*If you prefer to donate via check, please call or email Carrie Myatt for further details. Email is cemyatt@alz.org or 703-766-9031. For those who wish to do more to support the cause, please join the team and do your own fundraising. Feel free to reach out with any questions, for ideas, or support. Thank you for your continued support in the fight to end Alzheimer's and all dementia.

UPDATE on June 23:

Bridge Heroes scheduled 24 Bridge events at the Bridge Club of Northern Virginia on June 20 and 21; fifteen were run.  Our fifteen events drew 100 tables of players; this total was in the top ten of all Virtual ACBL Clubs.

384 Entry fees paid by the players will add over $1,000 to the Bridge Heroes total raised.  The remaining 16 participants were last-minute fill-ins for empty places at the tables and paid no entry fees.

216 individual players paid those entry fees; two of these played in six of a possible eight events; these two played a total of 111 hands of Bridge over the weekend.  Sharon and George Saile were true Bridge Heroes.

Unlike in previous years, we were unable to place a hat, basket, bucket, or jar at registration to collect additional donations from players as they entered the various events.  If you intended to donate more, there's still time to turn intention into action.

If you wanted to join the team but didn't get around to it, it's not too late.  There is an incentive prize for all registered team members.

Your Team Captain talked with Carrie Myatt, Constituent Events Manager for the local Alzheimer's Association office.  She asked if we wanted to change our goal ..."YES!  Our goal is to put Alzheimer's Association out of business because a cure is found!"

As for our 2020 fundraising goal, $10,000.  You can still help; there is a _DONATE _ button just below and to the right.
