Upcoming June Events at Essex Bridge Center
June 2018 is Jam-Packed!
King of Hearts Update
On April 29, 2018 we held a special Sunday set of games to honor our King of Hearts, Ken Powell.
We had a terrific day, sharing bridge with all of you in Ken’s honor.
The entire Powell family was so touched that so many of you came to play bridge that day to support us.
We heard from even more of you who could not make it but wanted us to know how much you cared.
We have been both humbled and extraordinarily moved by your kindness.
YOU raised $7,334 for Cycle for Survival in Ken’s name to continue in the fight to find the best treatments and support for rare cancers like Ken’s brain cancer.
Thank you so very much!
