Pics from the 5th Annual Blondes Vs Brunettes of Buffalo Game

For 5 years now, Sweet Home High School in Amherst has been home to the annual Blondes Vs Brunettes football game, a game put together by many, many beautiful women to help raise funds to fight Alzheimer's Disease. The movement started in Washington DC in 2005 and is now in over 35 cities nationwide! This year brought a big change to the BvB Buffalo chapter as founding co-chairs Kristin Crandall and Tracey Callisto stepped down to allow two new ladies to take over. Deanna Bednarz and Jenn Chodora (Buffalo Jills 1997-2004) wasted no time setting high expectations and set a goal of $90K to be raised in 2013. Before the game, BvB of Buffalo had raised over $77K, easily the highest amount it's raised in its 5-year history!

On a beautiful September day with temperatures in the high 50s (perfect football weather), the BvB organization faced off the Blondes versus the Brunettes in a battle to not only raise funds for Alzheimer's, but to prove football supremacy. So far, the series was 2-1-1 in favor of the Brunettes with the Blondes having won in 2012. This year, as it turned out, the series went to a tie with a 31-17 win by the Blondes and that was despite the Brunettes boasting Bills alumnus Gabe Northern as a coach.

Of course this blog is primarily about the ladies from the Pro Cheer ranks of Buffalo and, in addition to Jenn, who wore #12 while acting as a spotter in the press box, the Brunettes had Tammy (#10) (1994,95, 2002) and Julie L (#26)(1997-02) on the field for them with Tammy playing WR and Julie at CB.
