Terri Nordby and Kat Tuttle, at front table, get ready to play during the Feb. 26 game with the Lake Wildwood Duplicate Bridge Club.

The Lake Wildwood Duplicate Bridge Club is hosting three fund-raisers for the Alzheimer’s Association as part of “The Longest Day.”

Two events will be for bridge players, while the third is for community members who wish to participate in a creative “Paint and Sip” evening.

On Sunday, April 19, all bridge players are welcome for a duplicate game in the Lake Room of the Lake Wildwood Community Center.

Please come with a partner and arrive by 1:15 p.m. for table assignments. We will play bridge 1:30–5 p.m., followed by a wine and cheese gathering hosted by the Bridge Club. Table fees are $10 per player, with all proceeds benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association.

The Club will award prizes to the first- and last-place partnerships. For more information, contact Pam Moreland at (530) 615-4128 or

The “Paint and Sip” will be at Tuesday, May 12, 7–9 p.m., in the Cedar Room of the Lake Wildwood Clubhouse. Terri Nordby will lead the group in the creation of a patriotic painting that will be a perfect accent piece for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veteran’s Day.

Cost is $25, which includes one glass of wine or beer, cheese and crudité trays and all the art supplies. Other beverages will be available for purchase throughout the evening. To make a reservation, contact Terri at (916) 601-4565 or

The Club’s premier Alzheimer’s fundraiser will be on Wednesday, June 24, in conjunction with Unit 461 of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL). The day begins at sunrise for a 5:45 a.m. duplicate bridge game at the Golden Empire Grange, 11283 Grange Ct., Grass Valley. If you’d like, come dressed in your PJs.

Games continue at the Grange at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m., with refreshments offered at each session. The game moves to Lake Wildwood at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Center.

June 24 table fees are $5 per player, per game. Bring a partner and arrive 15 minutes early for table assignments.

“The Lake Wildwood Bridge Club is excited about getting the community involved in these three fun events to raise money and awareness in the fight against Alzheimer’s,” said Club president Deanna Heyser. “The Alzheimer’s Association is doing a phenomenal job in funding research, education and support to individuals and care-givers dealing with this devastating disease. Let’s join ACBL in their efforts to support the Alzheimer’s Association in this important work!”
