Tenth annual Old2Gold sale to be held June 14

Old to Gold Sale, 2013 Old to Gold sale

The 10th annual Old2Gold sale, a community sale that supports local charitable organizations, will take place from 7 to 10 a.m. June 14 (Saturday) at Notre Dame Stadium at the University of Notre Dame.

The sale is the University’s most significant community-based sustainability initiative. At the end of each school year, students are encouraged to donate items that may otherwise end up in a landfill. After items for the sale are collected at Notre Dame, the participating organizations spend time sorting, cleaning and arranging the items for the annual sale. These charities receive 100 percent of the revenues generated through Old2Gold. In 2013, $43,300 was raised through the sale. This year, 43 agencies are participating in the sale.

Clothes, bicycles, furniture, appliances, electronics, sports equipment and more are available at the sale, in addition to a boutique area featuring high-end items.

Admission stamps are required for entry for everyone older than 6 years of age. Admission is $5 and stamps will be given at a booth outside the stadium beginning at 5 a.m. the day of the sale. The line to purchase admission will open at 4:30 a.m. Attendees will enter the stadium through Gate C.

The sale is open to the public. Only cash is accepted, and buyers must be able to carry and transport all items. Free parking will be available in Lots B1 and C1 off Angela Boulevard. For more information, visit old2gold.nd.edu.
