The Notre Dame women’s basketball team is back in the Final Four for the second-straight season and the Irish will face Connecticut in the national semifinals this Sunday in Denver! For local Monogram winners and those making the trip out, we invite you to celebrate with your fellow members and Notre Dame alumni before the big game on Sunday!

The Notre Dame Alumni Association, the ND Club of Denver, and the Monogram Club will host a pre-game reception on Sunday, April 1 from 1-2:30 p.m. at Wynkoop Brewing Company in downtown Denver prior to the 4:30 p.m. tipoff at the Pepsi Center (you don’t need game tickets to attend reception). The event will feature free appetizers and a cash bar and there is no charge for admission.

From there, Monogram winners are welcome to join the Notre Dame athletics department at the Westin Denver Downtown hotel at 2:45 p.m. for a pep rally/sendoff for the Irish players, coaches and staff. The rally will include appearances by the Notre Dame cheerleaders and pep band.

The Monogram Club will have a table set up at the Wynkoop Brewing Company reception, so come see Reggie Brooks and Mark LaFrance to receive one of the Monogram Club prizes and gifts we’ll be bringing along. Please email LaFrance at if you plan on attending so we can estimate how many Monogram winners will be there.
