1/21 CFB in Memory of Bob Helitzer
1/21 CFB in Memory of Bob Helitzer


Bob had an awesome ability to make the perfect plan to win tricks at the bridge table.  He taught Eileen to play after retirement and they enjoyed many games at Streams.  It broke his heart to see so many homeless and hungry people in Tucson so Eileen chose Community Food Bank as his charity and many of our generous members have added to our Club Donation.
