The Hospital Auxiliary Nighttime Bridge Marathon will begin this month and go through May 2013, skipping December. This year players may choose meet on either the fourth Monday or the fourth Wednesday of each month.
Participants will play 20 hands of bridge at the Kenyon Place dining room at Friendship Haven, starting at 7 p.m. The cards, score sheets, and pencils will be there and Friendship Haven will provide coffee and water. Participants will turn in their score sheets after they finish playing the 20 hands.
The play-offs will be June 5 at Kenyon Place. There will be a potluck salad supper with dessert at 6 p.m., followed by the playoffs at 7 p.m. Prizes will be awarded.
Each player will pay a $15 contribution to the Trinity Regional Medical Center Auxiliary. The co-chairs will collect the money at the first game in September. Last year, the bridge marathon players donated $660 to Trinity Regional Auxiliary projects and $150 to Friendship Haven.
