Villanova Piccolo Girl Officially Turned Into a Bobblehead

The Kickstarter project is fully funded.

Roxanne Chalifoux is most likely crying again, this time in joy, after a Kickstarter project was fully funded to turn the Villanova Piccolo Girl into a bobblehead.

The project, which called for $5,000 in funding, already has pledges of $5,754, and as of this publication, there’s still 6 days to go for the Kickstarter. For pledges of $35 or more, you’ll receive a limited edition numbered Piccolo Girl bobblehead. For higher pledges, you can get signed pictures from Chalifoux and a personalized Villanova campus tour. The entire project is being sponsored by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame.

Chalifoux become an overnight “celebrity” of sorts when a television camera caught her crying while playing the piccolo during a March Madness (or, as social media deemed the moment, “March Sadness”) game.
