2013 Blondes vs. Brunettes
Game Returns to Elder High on August 11
Join us for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Blondes vs. Brunettes®, where two teams of women - divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes - compete in a flag football game to help raise awareness and funds in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
This year's event returns to Elder High School on Sunday, Aug. 11. Gates will open at 1 p.m. and the game will kick off at 2 p.m.
The mission of Blondes vs. Brunettes is to bring together prominent, civic-minded young adults for a powder puff football game to benefit the Alzheimer's Association.
Our passion and hard work will take us from practice to the playing field, but our success will rely upon the support of our friends and families and upon all of those willing to donate to this important cause. Together, we can tackle Alzheimer’s!

History of the Event
Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes® was created in the fall of 2005 by a group of young professional women in Washington, D.C. The founders had a personal connection to Alzheimer’s disease and designed the event to raise awareness among their peers while also raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Since that inaugural game in Washington D.C., the event has successfully branched out to dozens of cities nationwide (now Cincinnati!), raising more than $2 million and bringing thousands of new supporters to the cause.
Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer-driven active event for women that that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association. The event concept is organized around a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes.
The funds raised through Blondes vs. Brunettes benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
