Sad News
Sad News

As many of you have heard by now, our bridge community lost one of our favorites:  Diane Cullen passed away the afternoon of Sunday, August 9.  She will be remembered as one of the bridge icons of District 20 and will be greatly missed.  She had taken a fall earlier this year and injured her back.  She never really recovered from that.  She had the biggest heart of anyone I ever knew.  Her laugh was distinctive and contagious.  A link to her obituary can be found here.  

On Monday, September 7 we held a 25 table open and a 7 table 749er game in memoriam for Diane Cullen on BBO.  Diane was involved for many years with the Portland Rose Chapter of the American Business Women's Association (ABWA) and helped that organization raise over $1,000,000 for scholarships, chairing their annual auction for many years.  Isolde Knaap made a video of the auction that took her over $1,000,000 in donations and can be found here.

Three hundred eighty four dollars was donated to one of Diane’s favorite charities, the Oregon Food Bank.  If you would like to donate in Diane’s name here’s the link: https://give.oregonfoodbank.org/give/276807/#!/donation/checkout.
