Buffalo Blondes vs. Brunettes (BvB) - is an event at which Buffalo and WNY’s most prominent young leaders come together to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association WNY Chapter in support of their mission to eliminate Alzheimer's disease. The concept is built around the main event, a flag football game in which the two participating teams are comprised of women, playing on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes.
About Blondes vs. Brunettes History - In the fall of 2005, the first Blondes vs. Brunettes event was held in Washington D.C. Organized by a group of young women with a personal connection to the cause, the event quickly became a success and has since expanded. In 2009, Buffalo was the 5th city to join the fight, and raised over $110,000 since. $75,000 is the BvB 2012 Event Goal.
BvB events have taken place for the last several years in Dallas, Chicago, New York, and Washington, DC. BvB continues to grow with San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami and Denver joining in 2012. Together, they have raised well over a million dollars to put an end to Alzheimer's.
