THE BRIDGE ACADEMY and Durham-Chapel Hill Bridge Club held special "Charity Games" on November 9, 11 and 13. The games were in support of the veterans at Maple Court, a transitional housing community whose purpose is to provide affording housing and services for vets who are transitioning from being homeless to self-sufficient. The owner as well as the directors at The Bridge Academy contributed a percentage of game fees from each player that participated that week. Players brought in clothing and donations as well. 
With proceeds from the Charity Games, Maple Court administrators purchased six large office chairs for the facility.

Members of The Bridge Academy and Durham-Chapel Hill Bridge Club present a check to administrator of the Maple Court. Members of Bridge clubs include members of the Town & Country Garden Club and Homestead Heights Garden Club of Durham.
