Inaugural bridge tournament set for Aug. 15 in Cordillera

Daily staff report

AVON — Will you attempt an “Alcatraz coup?” Are you holding a “chunky suit?” Do you follow the “rule of three queens?” If you answered “yes,” “no” or “sometimes” to these questions, be sure to sign up for the inaugural Charity Bridge Tournament benefitting Bright Future Foundation on Aug. 15 at the Timber Hearth Grill at Cordillera.

“Nothing like this has been done in the valley before,” said Sheri Mintz, executive director of Bright Future Foundation. “We are so appreciative to Nancy Cruce for spearheading this event and look forward to making new friends for Bright Future Foundation in the bridge community.”

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and play begins at 9 a.m. Lunch will be served at noon. Fifty dollars of the $70 per player entry fee is a tax-deductable donation.

An ACBL sanctioned game, the Bridge Tournament will also award charity masterpoints to the winners. The tournament will host duplicate and social bridge. Reservations are limited, so get your partners and reserve your seat at the table by Aug. 8.

A fundraiser for Bright Future Foundation, this event provides funding for all Bright Future Foundation programs, including Advocates Against Assault, Buddy Mentors, Freedom Ranch Safehouse and Transitional Housing. For more information or to register, contact Becca at 970-763-7209 or

Bright Future Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-deductible.
