Bridge benefit planned June 8

CROSSLAKE — The bridge benefit for the Mid-Minnesota Women’s Center will be June 8 at Maucieri’s on County Road 3, just south of Crosslake.

All players, casual to serious, are welcome. The cost is $20 for advance registration or $25 at the door, with $6 from each ticket going to Maucieri’s to help defray the cost of lunch.

Registration will begin at 11 a.m. and lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. followed by an afternoon of social bridge.

Call Barb Bretz to reserve a spot at (218) 963-4344. Local businesses are donating prizes to be awarded at the end of the day.
