It's the longest day of
the calendar year and one Charlottesville organization is using the extra time
to make some money for the Alzheimer's Association.
The Jefferson Bridge Association
is one of 150 bridge groups across the country participating in a dawn-to-dusk
Nan Massie, the bridge association's
manager, says the event's success is beyond her wildest dreams.
"We set a goal of $5,000
for our club to raise five thousand during this the longest day. We have blown
that number away - I dare say we will more than double it," Massie said.
There is a silent auction Friday
evening followed by dinner then there more bridge playing until 10 p.m. Everyone
is welcome to join.
