Dinner & Reception

Friday, April 4, 2014

Jordan Hall of Science Galleria

Enjoy an Irish-inspired buffet and drinks. Meet the rugby players and coaches of both teams. Bid on great silent auction items, including autographed Coach Ara Parseghian rugby balls, Notre Dame memorabilia, and more.

2013 Parseghian Cup

Cindy Parseghian, president of the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation, will briefly talk about the foundation’s efforts to raise money for NPC research. NPC is a rare disease that causes cholesterol accumulation in the body's cells and leads to fatal neurodegenerative problems. There is no cure for NPC, but recent research has led to promising treatments.

100% of the silent auction proceeds will benefit the NPC research fund at Notre Dame. Donations will also be accepted throughout the evening.

Please complete the brief form below to RSVP for the dinner and reception..
