The Longest Day - Supporting Alzheimers Research

Wednesday, June 19th is the date BCNC has designated as our “Longest Day” game to support Alzheimer’s disease research funding.  BCNC is making a push this year to increase our donations.  ACBL has supported Alzheimer’s research funding for the past 10 years, raising over $9 MILLION dollars.  This is the year we shoot that number way over $10 million, with your help.  

How can you help?

Donate to our team online.  Alan has set up a teams page for us (click on “Donate" or "teams page" to get the link). Does anyone want to make a matching challenge?  Let us know - we’d love to have it.  

Play with us Wednesday 6/19, either morning or afternoon. If you usually attend another day of the week, make an effort to come that Wednesday - either in addition to or instead of your regular game.  BCNC donates the proceeds of those games to Alzheimer’s Association vis ACBL.

Learn - A representative from the local Alzheimer’s Association will be there midday to give a short presentation, as well as an appearance by Jay Lichter (Board member Suzanne’s long suffering, but very supportive husband).  Jay has been involved in early stage drug development for over 30 years locally and will give a brief talk about the history and challenges of developing a drug for Alzheimer’s. 

 

LOVE THE GAME, LOVE YOUR BRAIN

Partnerships

No individual can win a game by himself - Pele

BCNC is extending it's wildly successful  "Guaranteed Partnership Program" for the 0-499 Games.  You must arrive no later than 8:45 AM to participate (8:35 AM is better). 

The volunteers serving as Guaranteed Partners are NOT looking for a permanent partner themselves.  If you are in search of a regular partner, we recommend to keep playing and let your wonderful table etiquette and skilled card play do the talking.

Many thanks to Susan Ahlquist and John Mullin for organizing this program.  Please reach out to them with questions by using the Contact Us Form at the bottom of the page and put "Guaranteed Partnership Program in the Subject line.

Open Game Partnership Requests can still be made by filling out the Contact Us Form below and putting Open Game Partner Request in the subject line.  Please include your name and contact information in the body of the text and someone will be in touch with you.
