Yeats Country Online Charity Bridge Congress (Sligo)

A big thank you to you all for supporting our online congress – we had an unbelievable entry – and my apologies to the 80+ email entries we never got to open.  As a result of your fantastic support we estimate that we will have raised approximately 8000 euro to be divided among our 3 charities:  North West Hospice (Sligo), Milford Hospice (Limerick) and Blackrock Hospice (Dublin).  Special mention to Thomas MacCormac on his promotion to Grand Master which explains our contribution to his nominated charity (Blackrock Hospice).

Entry Fee BB$5 per session per person.  Normally Bridge Base Online retain 50% of all entry fees but because this is a Charity Congress they are waiving their fees completely so we are delighted to announce that 100% of the table money can be divided out amongst our three charities.  So a very big thank you to BBO for this very kind gesture.
