Fun will team up with philanthropy as blondes face off against brunettes in the 2013 Louisville Blondes vs. Brunettes® (BvB) women’s flag-football game to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana. On Saturday, June 15, at 5:30 p.m., two teams of women – divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes – will compete in a powder puff football game on Trinity High School’s football field.
Vying for 2013 bragging rights are Team Blonde co-captains Mallary Snyder, who lives in the Germantown area, and Molly Nelson of St. Matthews; Team Brunette captain is Liz Ulanowski of Crescent Hill. Each participant has raised a minimum of $200; together, team members have already raised more than $8,200 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
BvB started in Washington, D.C. in 2005 and has since spread across the country raising awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and more than $1 million for local Alzheimer’s Association chapters. Spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer their favorite team as well. Tickets can be purchased at the gate: for the game and after-party, tickets are $25; for the game only, they are $10.
