last year I joined an organization called BvB Dallas, a young-professional’s organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. Founded in 2008 by a group of motivated women, BvB Dallas is a way to honor and remember loved ones who suffered or are suffering from Alzheimer’s and related diseases. The culmination of our season is a football game hosted by the Cotton Bowl, where we have the honor of presenting a check to our woniderful beneficiaries.
I loved everything about playing for this wonderful cause, so I am back for a second season. I would be so grateful for your financial support, so that together we can make a huge impact. Last year we raised $650,000 and this year we are going for $700,000 and my personal goal is $3,000. Our game will be at the Cotton Bowl again and this year it’s on August 11th — my birthday!!
My first season, I starting out playing in honor of Mamie Edwards. A few weeks before the game, that changed to playing in memory of her. Throughout the season, I learned of many people in my life who have relatives with Alzheimer's or have been told they are at risk for developing Alzheimer's. I have the privilege and honor of playing again in memory of Mamie Edwards and the honor of playing in memory of a new person this year by the name of Hilda Cole Farley. I would like everyone to know that if you personally know someone who is being currently being affected or was affected with Alzheimer’s or related diseases, I will be playing in honor/memory of them, too.
Please join me in fighting against this terrible disease, because memories are worth fighting for! Every dollar counts and a donation of $25 or more allows you to attend the game at the Cotton Bowl.
