Blondes vs. Brunettes

Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer event driven by young women that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association.  The event is an organized flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes (Note: Redheads are “free agents,” permitted to play for the team of their choice).  Coaches, announcers, cheerleaders, and other volunteers are also key roles of the BvB game. Funds raised at Blondes vs. Brunettes events benefit the care, support, advocacy and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Game day is August 22nd at the San Francisco Golden Gate Rugby Club with practices beginning in April.
