Welcome to the Alzheimer’s Association’s Blondes vs. Brunettes®, (BvB) where two teams of women - divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes - compete in a flag football game to help raise awareness and funds in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Our passion and hard work will take us from practice to the playing field, but our success will rely upon the support of our friends and families and upon all of those willing to donate to this important cause. Together, we can tackle Alzheimer’s!

Ready to celebrate? - The fun won't end there! Join us at “The Shanty” at O'Gara's Bar & Grill for the official BvB Twin Cities Victory Party! (164 Snelling Ave.) Immediately following the trophy presentation, all fans welcome! A big thank you to Uber Cab who will be offering $20 voucher for a safe ride home from the festivities!
Matching Gifts: Matching gifts are an opportunity to double or possibly triple your donation and increase funding in the fight against Alzheimer's. Don’t delay, ask your employer today!
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Don't forget to ask your donors if their employer offers matching gifts, too! Ask your HR manager if your company will match gifts to the Alzheimer's Association. Typically, they will have paperwork for you to fill out and then the Alzheimer's Association will be asked to confirm the donation. Please note that funds will not show up on your fundraising page until your company pays out the matching gift. This is based on each company's payment schedule and can take several weeks or months.
