The 3rd Annual Arthur L. Loeb Cup Bridge Tournament was held at the Neighborhood House on October 8th. Over 200 bridge players from New York, Connecticut and around the country joined us for a morning of competitive bridge that raised funds to support Neighborhood House programs. Chaired by Board Member Amie James (pictured above with Judi Radin), the Tournament was directed by Cordelia Menges who, with Kathy Fallenius and Randall Rubinstein, ran three full sections of duplicate bridge. Judi Radin, Tournament Co-Chair and world renowned professional bridge player, and other members of the Benefit Committee organized a remarkable team of 19 bridge professionals who donated their time to participate in the benefit. Thank you to all who made this event such a tremendous success!
