4th Annual Blondes vs. Brunettes Event to Benefit Alzheimers
By Bonnie Carroll
Team Captains Kiersten Hess (Blondes), Heather Moine (Blondes), Breanna Czenczelewski (Brunettes), and Felicia Rueff (Brunettes), were stunning on the field at Bishop Garcia Diego High School on Saturday. RivALZ players have given their time at the annual event to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association. The spirit and dedication of these amazing women were inspiring. Congratulations to the Teams, kind Sponsors, and generous supporters!
Jerry Jordano of Central Coast Home Health, Inc., a team sponsor this year, enjoyed seeing VIP guest Dave Morley before the Blondes Vs Brunettes RivALZ game. Edhat my favorite online Santa Barbara news magazine sponsored a booth where Sue Foley and Zack Sklar met with event attendees, while my favorite editor Lauren Bray of Edhat was a player in the 4th annual game. VIP Sponsors and food vendor trucks fed the hungry crowd and provided cool beverages throughout the afternoon.
Sponsors, players and fans all seemed to enjoy themselves while savoring the food from Shrimp vs. Chef, 805 Street Bites, SB Woodfire Catering, Santa Barbara Brewing Company, ParadICE, Mr. E's Freeze and more. Children loved the Kids Zone, and totally got into the spirit with items donated by Muller & Webber Physical Therapy and others. The gift drawing tables were filled with amazing ticket items that donated by generous local gift sponsors.
Mode of the day was the 2017 Blondes Vs. Brunettes T-Shirt, and it looked like everyone got a team shirt. Montecito Bank & Trust event sponsors were busy pouring wine and serving iced beverages to attendees, as large groups and families with friends were seated under tents to stay cool while watching the game. Everyone was enjoying the great food and snacks being served. The Woodfire Pizza was fantastic! I especially liked the coconut ice cup, and I was told the Woodfire Pizza was outstanding.
BLONDES VS. BRUNETTES 2017 in support of the Alzheimer's Association was a real love fest. The kindness and generosity of everyone involved were so appreciated. Kudos to all the food, beverage and snack people who 'brought it' and we all love those brave women who went out there and played their hearts out to increase awareness and funding for the Alzheimer's Association California Central Chapter. Bravo!!
