The University of Notre Dame’s Harper Cancer Research Institute will hold an open house from 4 to 6:30 p.m. June 28 (Tuesday) in Harper Hall. The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.

Attendees will have an opportunity to tour the institute’s labs and to learn about cancer research being done in the South Bend community. A silent auction benefiting Notre Dame basketball coach Mike Brey’s Coaches vs. Cancer will take place. An online auction for those who cannot attend the open house can be accessed at www.harpercancer.wordpress.com/.

Todd Lyght, a member of the 1988 Notre Dame Football National Championship team and Super Bowl champion, and Reggie Brooks, a former Notre Dame All-American tailback and former Washington Redskins running back, also will be in attendance.

Refreshments provided by Crooked Ewe, Tapastrie and Fiddler’s Hearth will also be available at the open house at 1234 Notre Dame Ave., South Bend.
