About Our Auction

You are invited to San Diego Unit 539's sixth annual (second virtual) charity event in partnership with the ACBL to benefit the Alzheimer's Association.

The Longest Day... Bridge with the Experts Auction will start on Sunday, May 23, and will end on Monday, June 21.

We have 17 bridge experts in our auction who have generously donated their support to our annual charity event.

In addition to the Bridge with the Experts Auction, there will be back-to-back BBO unit games on Sunday, June 20th - Open games at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM, 999er games at 12:45 PM and 3:45 PM. The extra $1 from your $6 entry will be donated and matched by the Unit.

Formed in 1980, the Alzheimer's Association advances research to end Alzheimer's and dementia while enhancing care for those living with the disease.

The summer solstice is the “longest day” – the day with the most light – and each year at that time we come together with ACBL and the Alzheimer’s Association to fight the darkness that is Alzheimer’s Disease.

We hope you will support our efforts to honor the more than 35 million people worldwide and their caregivers who face this horrible disease every day of the year.

As the Longest Day's inaugural partner, the ACBL has raised more than $6 million for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

About San Diego Bridge Unit 539

San Diego Unit 539 includes most of San Diego County—from Carmel Valley, Mira Mesa and Scripps Ranch in the north to Chula Vista in the south—with the exception of La Jolla, Coronado, and a few areas in the southeast county.

In all, the unit covers nearly 700 ACBL members in more than 200 zip codes, and it includes these clubs: Redwood Bridge Club, San Diego Bridge Academy, and 21st Century Bridge club, all of which are located on 6th Avenue in Balboa Park, and the San Diego Bridge Club, located at the Normal Heights Masonic Center.

Until it recently lost its lease, the Adventures in Bridge club, founded in 1981, was another of the unit’s venues. At one time, “Adventures” was the 14th largest club in the nation.

Unit 539’s games are held at the beautiful Soledad Club on alternate Sundays. Twenty or more tables are in play in a typical game. Card fees are $10 per person, and hospitality is included at no extra charge.

Presently, due to the pandemic, we are hosting weekly virtual games on Sundays at 1:00pm on Bridgebase.com.

In addition to our regular games we host three sectional tournaments annually, hold an appreciation party for unit members, and conduct a special game for “The Longest Day” to raise money in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

And we recently began an education program to teach bridge to elementary and junior high students and to members of the military.
