Notre Dame, Ind. – Notre Dame’s athletic coaches and the Irish athletic department staff will help the University’s fundraising efforts for United Way by playing host to The Coaches’ Car Wash from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST, on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2004, on the Gold Field parking lots just west of Eck Baseball Stadium (enter off Edison Road). Notre Dame’s coaches, their staffs and members of the athletic administration will take part in the event, with Irish women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw, baseball coach Paul Mainieri and director of recservices & fitness Sally Derengoski coordinating the event. There is a $5.00 donation to have your car washed — and the public is invited.
