Blondes & Brunettes Face Off to Benefit the Alzheimer’s Association

By | Sports

SARATOGA SPRINGS - Blondes vs. Brunettes®, a volunteer-driven, all female gridiron event to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York, will host their 5th annual Powderpuff Football Game at 5:30 pm on Saturday, September 19 at Skidmore College. Tickets to the event are only $10 and children 16 and under are free-of-charge. A victory party will be held after the game at Peabody’s in Saratoga Springs. 

In this seriously athletic, but fun flag football game, two all-female teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry blondes and brunettes. The players, trained by experienced football players and coaches, have been practicing all summer. The Brunette Bombers are eager to defend their title, while the Blonde Bombshells are looking to reclaim the title. 

Blondes vs. Brunettes was created in the fall of 2005 in Washington DC, and has since made its way to many other cities nationwide. Since its entrance into the Capital Region five years ago, Blondes vs. Brunettes has raised over $180,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association Northeastern New York chapter. Thanks to this year’s presenting sponsor Philly Bar and Grill and The Bull and Barrel and to the team sponsors: NH Kelman, Inc and Morris Ford, the game is not only a fun competition, but an inexpensive, family friendly event. 

Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, and over 5.6 million Americans are currently living with the disease. As our population ages, the number of people affected is expected to grow considerably. All funds raised by Blondes vs. Brunettes are donated to the Northeastern New York Chapter, which provides vital services and support to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their family members in a 17-county area of the state.
