The Longest Day is an annual fundraising event held to support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease by the Alzheimer’s Association. This is the eighth year of our partnership with the organization, and our community has raised more than $6 million! (Funds raised in Canada are donated to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.)

The event spans the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice, and symbolizes the challenging journey of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.

Bridge is uniquely suited for The Longest Day because studies have shown that playing strategic games, like bridge, help keep your brain healthy. The Alzheimer’s Association has even included playing bridge on its list of 10 Ways to Love Your Brain.

For 2020, sanction fees from games held in Virtual Clubs on the weekend of The Longest Day (Sat-Sun., June 20-21) will be donated. To learn more about Virtual Clubs, visit acbl.org/virtual.
