Irish Women's Soccer Team To Auction Jerseys For Kicks Against Breast Cancer

Sept. 23, 2010

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – After the success of its jersey auction following last spring’s exhibition match against the Mexican National Team, benefiting Camp Whatcha-Wanna-Do (which raised nearly $3,000 for the Fort Wayne camp for children with cancer), the Notre Dame women’s soccer team once again is prepared to give fans the shirts off their backs.

During the final home weekend of the regular season (Oct. 8-10), the Fighting Irish will wear special white/pink uniforms for their matches against Seton Hall (Oct. 8, 7:30 p.m. ET) and Rutgers (Oct. 10, 1 p.m. ET) to show their support for Kicks Against Breast Cancer, a national soccer initiative to raise funds for breast cancer research.

Beginning Friday (Sept. 24) and continuing through Oct. 11, fans will have the opportunity to bid on these one-of-a-kind, autographed, game-worn jerseys by going to the official Notre Dame athletics auction web site at Proceeds from this auction will go directly to Kicks Against Breast Cancer, so join the Fighting Irish and help us in the battle to find a cure.
