BLONDES AND BRUNETTES ARE BACK AT THE BOWL!
CHARITY FOOTBALL GAME KICKS-OFF 7th ANNUAL SEASON WITH A BIG GOAL AND UPGRADED HOME
June 4, 2014 (Dallas, TX) After raising $350,000 last summer, BvB Dallas, the premier Powder-Puff Football Game and Fundraiser, is back with a bigger fundraising goal and a large roster of players, coaches and supporting participants to Tackle Alzheimer’s Disease this season.
“We are so excited to announce our highest fundraising goal yet- $400,000!” said Greer Fulton, BvB Dallas Chair. “Each dollar gets us closer to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s and diversifying our outreach initiatives each year. We are especially excited to discover new Alzheimer’s research programs, especially those located in Texas. With over 185 participants this season, and over 70% affected by Alzheimer’s disease, BvB Dallas is keeping things bigger and better in the Big D!”
The organization is also looking forward to moving back into the newly renovated Cotton Bowl at Fair Park, where more than 3,000 fans watched the Blondes take home the trophy in 2012. The game was held at Bishop Lynch High School in 2013 while the stadium was under construction.
The big Kick-Off celebration will be hosted at SISU on Saturday, June 7st, which marks the start of fundraising for the summer. Each player and coach must raise $1,000 to be on the field on game-day. Team Purple, which helps to organize events and Game Day logistics, pledges to raise $500 each. The organization has also added an Alumni Team for players that no longer plan to lace up, but want to support the cause. Fundraising will culminate at the end of the summer, and on August 16th, Team Blonde will take on Team Brunette on the field at The Cotton Bowl with the help of returning title sponsor Bud Light. Sponsorships are still being confirmed and interested participants and sponsors can find more information, photos and videos at bvbdallas.org.
