Girls of the gridiron – nearly 75 athletes in their 20s and 30s – will battle it out on the football field in the eighth annual Powder Puff Charity Football Game, a flag football competition, to raise money for CaringKind, NYC’s leading expert in Alzheimer’s and dementia care for more than three decades. CaringKind was formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter. The charity event, called TackleALZ NYC, is expected to raise $200,000 to support the free programs and services that benefit New York City families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The two teams will be divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between fair and raven-haired women. Redheads
and women with “alternative hair color” will play for the team of their choice. Coaches, announcers, and fans
will be on hand to help build an atmosphere of fierce, but friendly competition. A complement of retired NFL
players will serve as honorary coaches.
• 4:00 p.m.: Kick-off
Advanced purchase is encouraged, but tickets will be sold at the game.
