The Relay for Life Bake Sale is happening Wednesday, March 30th, in the ESC Cafe! The UR Walking on Sunshine committee is looking for bakers (or go out and purchase, we won’t tell 😉) to help our team raise funds and beat OIT! Outside of the auction, the bake sale is our biggest source for support, and there’s no better way to end the Lenten season than with a sweet treat.
Following the pattern from previous years, we are selling individual items (cookies, brownies, bars, etc…), or whole items (cakes, pies, etc…). If you would like to submit a baked good, please reach out to Jess Witous (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Leah Corachea (email@example.com)
It would be greatly appreciated if I could get a rough estimate of our inventory by March 28th so we can best prepare for this event.
Your support is sincerely appreciated,
Jess, Leah, Kristin, and Pam

A direct mail solicitation to undergraduate alumni in our recruitment population will drop on March 11. The total audience is 52,000 and does not include anyone with a FY16 gift. A follow-up email solicitation will be sent on March 20.
The theme of the piece is “Notre Dame Golden Moments,” which features five undergraduate alumni sharing their favorite Notre Dame memories. The marketing objective is to encourage gifts that help today’s students create their own Notre Dame stories. The reply card in the mailing also includes space for undergraduate alumni to write back and share their own personal Notre Dame Golden Moments. They can also do this online at supporting.nd.edu/goldenmoments
