Annual Evansville Blonds vs Brunettes Football Game to Tackle Alzheimer’s
Women playing football for a great cause? Best. Idea. Ever.
The annual Blondes vs. Brunettes all-female football game takes place this Sunday at 2pm at Bosse High School to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The Blondes vs. Brunettes football league was created in 2005 by Sara Abbott in Washington, D.C. and found its way to Texas by way of Sara’s sister, Kate Stukenberg with the goal being to raise awareness and money for Alzheimer’s research. A disease the sisters knew all too well after losing both their grandmother and their father to the disease.
In the seven years since its inception, the league has branched out to more than 20 additional cities including Evansville with the money raised going to the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association while playing up the age old rivalry of blondes and brunettes.
Tickets are $5.00 in advance and $10.00 the day of the event. Kids five and under are free, while kids 5-11 are $2.50 in advance and $5.00 the day of the event. If you can’t make it to the game, but would still like to contribute to the cause, you can hit up the Alzheimer’s Association website and donate online.
