Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
Just like that, it’s officially fall. As the students are now back in school and working hard, we’re also working hard to put together some great events. Read on for the details. We hope to see you at one of them!
Duke Game Watch!
Saturday, September 24th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
This week, we have a battle of ACC 1-win-2-loss teams, but I’m pretty sure that’s where the similarities end. NDs losses come to #21 Texas and #8 MSU, while Duke’s losses were to Wake Forest and Northwestern. The Irish are averaging 38 points per game, while Duke is earning 25.3. Duke is also 0-3 on FGs this year with their Freshman kicker, while ND is 2-3. Duke does have better stats for defense, with 25 tackles for loss (102 yards) vs. the Irish 14 TFL (36 yards). Bottom line, the Irish are 20-point favorites heading into this home game, so it should be an enjoyable victory. Also of note, the Duke club will be joining our Downtown/EVT game watch this week, so we’ll have the opportunity to display the ND spirit first-hand to our ACC competitors. Kickoff time is perfect for having some great food among friends and watching a football game, so please join us at one of our two fantastic locations. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. Here’s how to find us: Prospect Bar & Grill – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Halloween Party for Kids at Fr. Joe’s Village
Friday, October 28th, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Domer Friends and Families, we need your help and support for our next community outreach event. On October 28, Friday, at the Father Joe Village downtown San Diego (Imperial Ave) we will put on a Halloween Themed celebration for homeless and disadvantaged teens. We need a team that is willing to be creative to decorate the hall, manage the food line, and also set up a craft table full of supplies to make your own masquerade mask. We are looking at 60 to 70 total people with 50 teens and the rest support staff and volunteers. Having fun is authorized, making a positive influence on these challenged teens is welcomed, and giving this group of party goers a few hours of normalcy is the goal. We need food, music, and people the day of the event willing to enjoy
the evening (In costume would be great!). if you’re interested in volunteering or if you would like more information please contact Martin Holguin MBA ’14 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
