It’s that time of year again.Â My alma mater Penn State (who has kind of a goofy schedule this year, but I will get back up for a game), our own Redskins, and your favorite college and pro teams aren’t the only ones with their eyes on the pigskin.
Blondes vs Brunettes returns for our Washington ladies who since 2005, have done their part in tackling (pun intended) the degenerative disease of Alzheimer’s.Â By way of individual fundraising and ticket sales to the main flag football event, these young women have raised close to $150k for the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter.Â The money donated goes to the Chapter’s services and programs which are provided at no or low cost to area residents.
While I won’t get involved on the field, I’m happy to support this event and cause because my own grandfather passed away from Alzheimer’s many years ago.Â Learn more about Blondes vs Brunettes, how you can sponsor, donate, and of course, make it to the always highly entertaining game on Saturday, November, 14th (Kick off is 1pm).
