To make it easier on him, I'm hoping to give my Dad the ultimate retirement gift - an all expenses paid trip to see a football game at Notre Dame. For those of you who know my Dad, Notre Dame Football is as much a part of him as his family and his students. He has a stadium picture hanging in his living room, an assortment of Fighting Irish knick-knacks around his home, and a 'Play Like a Champion' sign in his classroom. Although he saw ND play at Stanford, it has ALWAYS been his dream to see a game in South Bend at Cartier Field and I would like to make that dream a reality, to not only honor his contributions as an educator but to thank him for all he's done for my family and community.
I'd like to raise $2,500 which will cover the following: round trip airfare from Spokane to Chicago for two people, a rental car for three days to get to South Bend, accommodation for two nights, two tickets to the game, and some spending money for the ND bookstore. My first goal is to raise $750 for the tickets which will be purchased at the end of July and the rest will follow.
I'd appreciate any support in making his dream a reality, so please consider donating even if its only $5. Along with donations, please feel free to leave any comments regarding my dad's retirement, which I'll happily share with him.
Thank you in advance for your support. And as Dad would say - Go Irish!
