The Longest Day to Support the Alzheimer Society London & Middlesex

On Wednesday, June 20th, in conjunction with the ACBL's The Longest Day, London Bridge Centre will have a full day of bridge in support of the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex.

Make a day of it. Play Bridge and Bid on Silent Auction Items. All proceeds from the silent auction and from the social bridge morning will go to the Alzheimer Society London Middlesex. As well, the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) will donate the regular sanction fee ($US 1.00 per table) and the surcharges for the duplicate games to the Alzheimer Society of Canada. 

To make our fund raising a success we look forward to receiving your donations for the silent auction. Please leave items in a marked box in the LBC office by June 15th. 

Include:  Your name and contact information, description of the item and approximate value of the item

For more information regarding the Silent Auction, please contact Sheila Elston at
