Backstoppers assists families of St. Louis area police officers, firefighters, and other emergency personnel who are killed in the line of duty.  So it was fitting that on the afternoon of September 11, 2016 "pros" from the St. Louis area gathered to play with the Unit 143 members who had bid for the chance to play with them.  All money raised was donated to Backstoppers.

Congratulations to Bridge Haven for putting on the Pro-Am charity game and raising $12,660 to benefit this deserving organization.

Fringe Benefits of Bridge? Brainpower!!!

Playing your cards right can help keep you sharp long after retirement

by Jon Saraceno,  AARP Bulletin, March 2015

Bridge makes us use our brains.picture of brain

When doctors evaluate games that are most effective in

staving off dementia, bridge is always at the top of the list

Bridge players are the most successful agers on earth.

Although it cannot cure Alzheimer's, bridge is a wonderful game

to slow the onset and progression of Alzheimer's.
