UR Relay for Life Fundraiser Auction

Dear Colleagues,

The University Relations Community Service Committee is planning a fundraiser to support Notre Dame’s Relay for Life.  The committee will be hosting an online silent auction for all University Relations staff. (This auction is separate from the auction mentioned in TheWeek@ND.)   We need your help to make this very important fundraiser a success.

We are asking you to search your homes for items that you would be willing to donate to the silent auction.  Then bid on items that others have donated.  All items donated must be in tiptop condition.  You might have received something as a gift that is beautiful and/or useful, but just not your style.  Maybe you enjoy crafts and have made something that you would like to give.  Maybe you have a service that you could provide for the highest bidder.  Maybe you are a great baker and could donate a “coupon” for a homemade pie or other delicacy.   You might be willing to donate tickets for an event.  The possibilities are endless.

Please think about what you could donate to this very worthy cause and start bringing it in.  Donations can be left with Gerry Brown or Kris Machalleck in ESC, Jill Donnelly in the Law School, Katie Zakas or Lori Willard in Eck, Kathy Lentych or Barbie Bertschy in 405 Main Building, or Barb Patnaude in Grace.


As the items are brought in, they will be photographed and displayed on myNotreDame.  The site can be accessed using the following link:


Follow the directions on the website to bid on the items.  There is already a fabulous item up for bids and new items will be added every day as they are donated.  Bidding begins today and will end at 5:00 on April 26th.

Thanks for your support of ND’s Relay for Life!
