BRIDGEPORT, CONN. -- Bridge players visited Brooklawn Country Club for LifeBridge's seventh annual “Bridge to a Brighter Future."
The popular tournament allows players to compete in their choice of ACBL sanctioned duplicate bridge or more relaxed social bridge games at the event, which is a fundraiser for LifeBridge Community Services.
The day included a buffet lunch, prizes, and a Chinese Auction along with a choice of social or ACBL sanctioned duplicate bridge.
Fairfield resident Katie Rust, Co-Chair of Bridge to a Brighter Future, explained how the event came to be seven years ago. “As a LifeBridge board member,” said Rust, “I wanted to do something to help raise funds for the organization. I’m an avid bridge player, and so seven years ago I organized the first annual bridge event. Many of the people I play with regularly have been involved with LifeBridge throughout the years, and they all thought that a day of bridge was a great idea. And I guess it was — it’s grown each year since."
