Sorin Society Exclusive Pre-Pep Rally Reception

Sorin Society members are invited for an intimate reception at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) building, 1776 D Street, NW, Washington, D.C., before the Notre Dame pep rally. The DAR is a historic venue prominently located on 17th Street, NW across from the National Ellipse, within view of the White House to the north and the Washington Monument to the south.

Arrive at the outdoor portico where you will be welcomed by Notre Dame dignitaries, fellow Sorin Society benefactors, and other friends of the University. Here you will be able to relish in and enjoy one of the most spectacular views of the National Mall.
We will invite you into the O’Byrne Gallery to mingle and explore the many facets of the building while enjoying a premium cash bar and hors d’oeuvres.

John Affleck-Graves, Executive Vice President, and Lou Nanni, Vice President of University Relations, will provide an update on all things Notre Dame and share the impact of your philanthropy. Docents will be on hand to provide tours of the many state themed rooms throughout the facility. This event is sure to leave you with a lasting memory of the elegance and charm of our Nation’s Capital and pride in Notre Dame.
