BENEFITING: BIG D POWDERPUFF TACKLING ALZHEIMERS INC
ORGANIZER: BIG D POWDERPUFF TACKLING ALZHEIMERS INC
BvB Dallas is a powder-puff football game hosted for a day of fun, fellowship, philanthropy and enjoyment as a way of raising money for Alzheimer's research and awareness. Founded by sisters whose father was afflicted by Alzheimer’s, BvB is a personal way for young professionals across the country to raise awareness, funds and support to TACKLE ALZHEIMER'STM FOREVER.
I have been involved with this group as a volunteer, participant, or donor, since it's inception 9 years ago. In that time I have watched it grow from a small group into the fundraising machine it has become. I can't think of any young professional groups doing more for a singular cause like this that affects so many people. While there are other Alzheimer's advocacy groups, BvB Dallas is committed to funding reseach and caregiver support with your donations. Last year, we gave two grants totaling approximately $400,000 to fund research projects being conducted at local research institutions. That's not just raising awareness; it's working towards a cure. We've also used remaining funds to support caregivers and patient support. With BvB Dallas, your donations and sponsorships are really making a difference.
So, join us this year at the Cotton Bowl, and at our many events throughout the season, by donating today!
