Generous Unit 500 Players
We collected $390 in donations last week in the San Felipe Charity game in memory of Virginia Herring, Joe Parker, and Don Schrump. This far exceeds the $1 minimum donation from our players. Some of the donations were from people who knew these nice people but couldn't play in the game. We also have a few pledges which will take the amount well over $400. Our bridge players are very generous.
All donations are going to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. For anyone who wants to send a donation, please call 1-800-805-5856 and pay by credit card. Since St. Jude's had to make three separate accounts, I selected Virginia's account to receive any late pledges. The account number to reference is #36899000. (They can't take donations on their website if you want to reference a specific account.)
