Powderpuff Football

COLUMBUS, Ohio – About 40 women, with varying amounts of experience on the football field, will line up Saturday at the Columbus Commons for the fourth annual Blondes vs. Brunettes Powderpuff Football Game to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Ohio.

The seven-on-seven flag football game will feature 25 brunettes against 15 blondes, brunette player Amanda Brewer said.

“Across the country, there’s just a shortage of blondes and we’ve seen that in the different states that Blondes vs. Brunettes are in,” Brewer said.

In spite of the numerical advantage, Brewer’ and her teammates lost the first two games in the series before winning last year.

The event has raised approximately $45,000 since it began in 2010 and all of the money raised is used in the Columbus area, Brewer said.

This year’s event has already raised about $13,000 via online donations, Brewer said.

Kickoff is 2:00, pregame events begin at 1:00 and there is an entrance fee of $20.

“I always remind the girls: The most important thing is, this is a charity event. It does get competitive,” Brewer said.

The game is organized by the Junior Committee, a young professional group dedicated to raising awareness of people in their 20’s and 30’s about Alzheimer’s disease.
