Continuing a 17-year tradition of spirit and service, the 2006 design for “The Shirt Project” at the University of Notre Dame will be unveiled at a kick-off celebration atnoonFriday (April 21) at the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore. The shirts will be available for purchase immediately after the event.
Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis, along with the marching band, cheerleaders and leprechaun will join the fanfare, which will include food, drinks and prizes.This year’s lunchtime release was scheduled to accommodate faculty, staff, students and community members who might want to purchase the spirit apparel.
Notre Dame students have been wearing “The Shirt” to football games since 1990 to unite in support of their team. Over time, other members of the Notre Dame community have adopted the tradition. The project, sponsored by Student Activities and the Notre Dame Alumni Association, has raised more than $3.5 million for student organizations and to aid students in need.
This year’s shirt sells for $15 and a limited number will be available at the bookstore beginning Friday in conjunction with the Blue-Gold football game, which will be played Saturday (April 22).
