Local organization bridges Alzheimer's gap

A local group has come up with a unique way to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association.
The Evansville Duplicate Bridge Club will be hosting its longest day of bridge play on Friday.

They have several games scheduled at 9 A.M., 1 P.M. and 5. Each session is about 3 to 4 hours long.

Everyone who's playing has raised money from their family and friends to take part. The public is invited to come down and watch, support the players and donate money.

Everything they raise will go to support research and care efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

5 million people in the US are living with the disease right now. It's estimated that by 2050, 16 million people could be affected.

All games will be played at the Evansville Duplicate Bridge Club. That's on Green River Road, at the corner of Covert.
