Newsletter june : Successful bridgedrive for the benefit of SOID

Posted: 14 june 2013

Sittard

Our good friends Marlene and Peter Indemans, who are also sponsors of SOID, had organised a bridgedrive for the benefit of SOID on Saturday 8 June 2013 in Beek, the small town where they live. After the participants had been welcomed at the home of Marlene and Peter at 10.00 a.m., the actual bridgedrive took place at five different locations in Beek, with the participants moving from one location to the other location after completing a round. Forty persons had entered the drive.

The weather was beautiful,the participants were in an excellent mood and they were taken good care of. There were all sorts of cakes, snacks and drinks, for the greater part donated. The wine for this event had been donated by “The Friends of Wine”, a local non-profit organisation. To the delight of both the organisers and the players, everybody could spend the breaks outside in the sunshine.

At the end of the afternoon, we have given a short presentation on SOID. There was a lot of interest in the presentation and those present were very pleased with SOID’s activities.

The prize distribution that took place later caused quite a bit of hilarity. The day was closed at 8:30 p.m..

The bridgedrive was a huge succes. The participants had a wonderful day and many of them insisted on a repeat in 2014. The net proceeds for SOID are EUR 1000, an extraordinary and unexpected result for which we are most grateful!

Thanks a lot Marlene en Peter for organising this event and for all your efforts for SOID!
