Be a Solstice Champion at our Longest Day Unit Games with elevated points!!


Unit 498 will be hosting unit sponsored games on BBO on Saturday, June 19, at 1:00 pm and on Sunday, June 20, at 1:00 pm. 


These games will offer both 499er and Open Sections.  The fees for the games will be $15 with most of these fees going to the Alzheimer’s Association. 


On BBO Virtual Club Games, look for VACB263616 on Saturday and VACB273474 on Sunday. 


The Longest Day is the annual fundraising event held to support the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease.  This 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. 

For the past several years Unit 498 and The Peninsula Team have supported the Longest Day fund raising campaign with the ACBL by playing the game we love, Bridge.  Last year our community raised over $12,000 with your generous donations.


On behalf of our 2021 committee, Fred Chasalow, Team Captain, Barbara Lewis, Sue Papilion, Danna Sorenson, and Janelle Van Rensselaer, we would like to invite you to join us to make a difference once again.

2021 Mentor Program Unit 498
