CLEVELAND, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This football town is about to change its colors…at least for one day. Blondes vs. Brunettes, a women's flag football game, is coming to Cleveland Saturday, June 15 to support the Alzheimer's Association Cleveland Area Chapter. The public is invited to help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease by coming out to cheer on their favorite team – blonde or brunette!
Hosted by Cleveland State University on Krenzler Field, the big game will feature two teams, divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between Blondes and Brunettes. Red heads and everyone in between are free agents and get to choose their team. While the players' roster is ladies only, men are involved as coaches.
This is the second year for Blondes vs. Brunettes in Cleveland. Last year the event raised $41,250, making it one of the top inaugural games in the country. The event has also been highly successful in other major cities such as Washington DC, Chicago and New York, raising more than $2 million for the Alzheimer's Association nationally.
