We love our game of Mah Jongg but we also love our winnings. And now there is a way to give back some of those winnings to all of those who suffer from the devastating disease of Alzheimer’s. This is a national fundraiser and I am happy to say that Mah Jongg groups all over the country are holding events in June to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. But we need more…won’t you include your group?
Join the Alzheimer’s Association’s The Longest Day Fundraiser through playing Mah Jongg and Mah Jongg for Memories.
Players will be helping fund care, support, and research for the over 5.8 million people in the United States who are living with this disease and other dementias, and the nearly 16 million caregivers.
In the month of June, Mah Jongg groups across the country will be dedicating their regular play-days to the Alzheimer’s Association by making donations to the cause. Also, other players will be holding more elaborate and larger day-long fundraising events. Some will have lunch and silent auctions, while others will enjoy snacks and donate their day’s winnings. All, however, will combine the fun and challenge of Mah Jongg with the objective of ending Alzheimer’s, the all-consuming disease that threatens the mental ability of every Mah Jongg player.

Here are a few examples of what is happening with some of the country’s Mah Jongg for Memories events – let me know what your group is doing so I can post information about it for all to see:
