Once again, Jefferson Bridge Association  along with bridge clubs across the country, is joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease on The Longest Day, Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

The Jefferson Bridge Team is now registered on the Alzheimer’s website, and we have set a goal of $10,000!  

You, as a member of Jefferson Bridge Association, can help us achieve this goal by joining us for a full day of bridge (see the schedule below), by donating on the website, and by sending requests for donations to your friends and family.  Plan to participate in one or all of the events!

To make a donation, please go to http://act.alz.org/goto/jbalongestday  and click on “Donate” next to “Jefferson Bridge Team.”

Please use the following letter template to send to your friends and family requesting that they support you and our team in the fight against Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Dear ___

On June 21, the Summer Solstice, I’m participating in The Longest Day, an event which is held each year to raise awareness and help fund the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

From sunrise to sunset, my team, The Jefferson Bridge Association, and other bridge clubs across the country will be playing Bridge, for we believe that mentally stimulating activities such as Bridge may help keep the brain active and healthy. 

Do you know that today over 40,000,000 people around the world are living with Alzheimer’s, including more than 5,000,000 here in the U.S?  The countless caregivers and family members of those who suffer from the disease are also victims.   Stop and think about it for a moment…how many people do you know who are affected by this disease?   Too many, I’m sure.  And, unfortunately, the numbers will continue to rise until the disease is conquered.  That’s why I’m joining the fight and requesting that you support my team with a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.    

Please make a contribution to our team by going to our website:   http:// act.alz.org/goto/jbalongestday or by sending a check, made payable to the Alzheimer’s Association, to Jefferson Bridge Association, 312 Squirrel Path, Charlottesville, VA 22901.

Welcome to the Jefferson Bridge Association, Charlottesville, Virginia

Enjoy real southern hospitality at Jefferson Bridge Association's (JBA) games where you'll find challenging bridge, gracious players and delicious refreshments.

JBA was organized in 2006 to add to the enjoyment of duplicate bridge in Charlottesville and the surrounding areas of Virginia. The member-owned, non-profit club is sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. JBA runs three games each week and sponsors an annual tournament. The club offers many special events to award additional masterpoints to the winners and benefit local charities. 

On the first Friday of each month, club masters offer a forum to discuss and teach bidding systems and playing techniques.

ACBL certified instructors offer private or group bridge classes beginning, intermediate and advanced players.

JBA was the first bridge club♠ in the US to use the highly successful Bridgemate Wireless Scoring System for instantaneous feedback and scoring.  All games feature pre-dealt hands and hand records.  Results of each game are posted on this website.
