The Longest Day for Alzheimers
The Longest Day for Alzheimers

On Tuesday, June 18 Harrisburg Bridge Club hosted an ice cream social for both the afternoon and evening bridge games. Participants were able to choose the toppings of their choice complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top! Proceeds of over $700 from both games will be going to the ACBL's Longest Day for Alzheimers. Many thanks to Bridget Whitley pictured above left, for organizing our Longest Day Event, and Linda Ivanoff pictured above right, for handling the ice cream sundae duties! Yum Yum! Donations to Alzheimers will still be accepted by the club.
