The Alzies is a young professional's auxiliary group of the Alzheimer's Association Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter. The group consists of men and women age 35 and under who are committed to creating a world without Alzheimer’s. Established in 2006, the group has raised over $637,000 for local programs and services. Their main fundraising event is the Blondes vs. Brunettes Powder Puff Football Game held every Spring.
Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer-driven event that raises awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Two teams of women – divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes – compete in a flag football game to help end Alzheimer’s. The participants also recruit coaches, announcers and other volunteers to build an atmosphere of fierce, friendly competition. Leading up to game day, the two teams participate in a series of events to socialize and increase awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. Learn more about the game at www.bvbhouston.org.
