The Longest Day at UNIT 174 Clubs
Four clubs held bridge games for the longest day in our unit: Bridge Club of Houston in Spring,
Clear Lake Bridge Club, Star DBC in Bryan and Westside Bridge Academy. The UNIT 174 board appreciates the effort
of our clubs in support of this worthy national ACBL event.
All of the clubs raised a lot of money.
Westside did not take pictures. To see the pictures submitted by the other clubs go to Unit Pages and click on Photo Gallery.
Longest Day Bridge Exhibition Raises Funds for Alzheimer's Research
The Unit 174 Marketing committee hosted a bridge exhibition on Saturday, June 18th at Memorial City Mall. The committee organized volunteers to participate by playing Rubber Bridge throughout the day.
Volunteers also hosted MiniBridge tables to attract crowd participation and intice passersbys to try their hand at the world's most popular partnership card game.
In addition to providing a showcase to raise visibility and interest in bridge, the Unit also raised $1,000 in proceeds from Rubber Bridge and donations.
Thanks to all who helped make this day a success!
