Alzheimer’s Association Greater East Ohio Area Chapter


DOWNTOWN AKRON — The Alzheimer’s Association Greater East Ohio Area Chapter is making preparations for its newest fundraising event, Blondes vs. Brunettes. The organized flag football game, which will take place June 1 at the indoor Stile Athletics Field House at The University of Akron, is a volunteer-driven initiative that brings young professional women in their 20s and 30s together to support the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association. The game kickoff is set for 1 p.m. Redheads are considered “free agents” and can play on either side. Those attending the game also are invited to a tailgate party at noon with a number of activities planned. Admission is $20 for ages 13 and older and free for children 12 and younger. Funds raised will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association’s programs and services for care, support, advocacy and research. For more information on the event or purchasing tickets, contact Community Development Coordinator Cindy Baker at 330-650-0552 or email cbaker1@alz.org or visit www.bvbakron.org.
