Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family!
Big game this week! But wait, there’s lots more. For those of you who only scan these posts, in addition to the Game Watch & Fall Crawl, we also have Karen Moyer ’87 hosting a screening of an Emmy award-winning documentary on Oct 7th, Cort Peters ’96 giving a Theology Uncorked appearance on the 8th, and Tina Williams ’02 requesting your support for a great event at Stone Brewing at Liberty Station on the 16th. All the details are below…
Stanford Game Watch!
Saturday, October 4th, 12:30pm (Pacific Time)
Huge game this week, Irish fans. Stanford at #13 was the victor in the closing game of last year’s regular season. Now, they come to the house that Rockne built to see if they can repeat. History is in favor of the Irish, who are 18-10 overall against Stanford, and 11-3 vs. the Cardinal at ND. It’s looking like a hot weekend in San Diego, so why not join your fellow Irish fans for a cold frosty beverage and some great food at one of our two game watch locations:
Annual Fall Crawl
Saturday, October 4th, 11:30am (registration); Noon (start)
Every year, our (mostly young) alumni compete with other local alumni groups in this annual tradition organized by the Duke club. Join Young Alumni coordinators Jackie Rodriguez ’10 and Brendan Dolan ’14 as the lead the Irish team to victory. Stops along the crawl will include Basic, Southpaw, The Deck, Knotty Barrel, and finishing up at our game watch location, East Village Tavern + Bowl. Your $15 includes pizza, a free drink and a free shooter, as well as drink specials at all the bars, and some great prizes will be awarded to a lucky few. The event will probably max out their 150 person capacity, so get your registration in early. You do not need to be officially a young alum to participate, by the way. Register at this link, and feel free to drop a note to Jackie & Brendan to know to look for you via the firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address.

- Special Screening of the Emmy Winning documentary ONE LAST HUG: Three Days at Grief Camp.
Tuesday, Oct 7th, 6pm-8pm, San Diego Central Library Auditorium
Karen Moyer ’87 invites you to a special celebratory screening and panel discussion. Karen will be joined by The Honorable Scott H. Peters who will also provide remarks. The documentary, which features The Moyer Foundation’s Camp Erin Los Angeles program shares three compelling and emotional stories of children who have lost a parent. Through their powerful experience at Camp Erin—and with the help of their peers, grief professionals and volunteers—these children blossom into “kids” again. “ONE LAST HUG” sheds light on this important issue of childhood bereavement that our society has neglected for decades. You can download the event flyer via this link. Please RSVP to Nicole Weaver (up to the day of the event) at firstname.lastname@example.org
