After School Programs
"MBEF" is working to establish programs to educate Monterey County area
youth on the enjoyment of learning and bridge playing. The Foundation
will be working with local youth organizations and schools to initiate
these after school programs.
Currently a program is running at:
Sacred Heart School
123 West Market Street
This program began March 2015.
If you would like more information about establishing a youth program

MBEF sponsors an 8-lesson Easybridge! series of classes on a periodic basis
throughout the year, held on Thursdays from 4:30-6:30. The Foundation offers
the series very affordably, requesting only a $50.00 tax-deductible donation.
The next series will be announced on this Web Site. Please check our calendar
for upcoming dates. One of our Board members, Doug Halleen teaches these
classes and is a certified Easybridge ! instructor, as well as a certified
instructor and member of ABTA (American Bridge Teachers Association).

Shuffle & Play
The Foundation offers a supervised Shuffle & Play on Thursday afternoon
from 2:30-4:30 at the Monterey Bridge Center. Hetty Eddy, another Board member,
oversees the Shuffle & Play, offering bidding or play suggestions on request.
This is a FUN couple hours that offers the newer player the opportunity of
learning while playing, and there is no cost.
Intermediate Lessons and Private Group Lessons
Intermediate lessons are offered at the Monterey Bridge Center on a periodic basis
by different instructors, not necessarily through the Foundation and at different
costs. Private lessons at various levels of expertise can also be available.
