Kickstarter for Villanova Piccolo Girl bobblehead

You know the story. Villanova band member Roxanne Chalifoux was filmed at the end of the Wildcats' loss to NC State in the NCAA Tournament playing her piccolo as tears streamed down her face.

The video and vine went viral.

Memes were created.

Roxanne got to appear on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and got the the house band, The Roots, to play the Villanova Fight Song.

The 15 minutes aren't over.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame wants to capture that special moment with a bobblehead. You can back the Kickstarter to make it happen. A pledge of $15 will get a bobblehead sent to you anywhere in the world when they're expected to ship in early autumn.

Chalifoux graduates with a degree in Biology this month and then will continue her education in Optometry School. She will be receiving a portion of the project and according to the Kickstarter, plans to donate a portion of those proceeds to the Villanova University Band.
