One of my favorite Notre Dame football weekend traditions is to attend the events the Holtz’s Heroes Foundation puts on during their annual reunion weekend. The brunch, in particular, is a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of (and possibly talk to) Coach Holtz, and rub elbows with many of the men who played for him. They have two events planned for the ND vs. Cal game weekend, and they are “must attend” events as far as I’m concerned. Here’s all you need to know!

The Holtz’s Heroes Foundation, Inc. (HHF) is excited to cordially invite you to join them at their Annual HHF Reunion Weekend Brunch. This year’s brunch will be held in advance of the University of Notre Dame versus the University of California football game (GO IRISH!) on Saturday, September 17th, 2022, at the Embassy Suites Ballroom (1140 E Angela Blvd, South Bend, IN 46617) in the shadow of Notre Dame Stadium. The annual brunch has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to break bread and interact with Notre Dame Football legends, while simultaneously helping the foundation serve and support their athletic alumni through various challenges of life.

On account of the excitement and impact last year’s cornhole tournament generated the foundation is pleased to announce that they will be hosting a cornhole tournament again this year on Friday, September 16th from 1:30 PM – 4:30 p.m. (EST). Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northern Indiana Food Bank. Even if you do not plan to participate in the cornhole event they ask that you attend as a spectator and bring food items such as dried and canned goods to support the area food bank.

About the Holtz’s Heroes Foundation

Love. Trust. Commitment.

We shared sidelines, huddles, and locker rooms during our time playing at Notre Dame. Today, we share the values instilled in us during that time by our coach, and now friend, Lou Holtz. His lessons went far beyond X’s and O’s; he taught us the true meaning of team and commitment. The Holtz’s Heroes Foundation dedicates all its efforts to making those lessons present in our daily lives. From how we support each other to the way we serve our community. Together, we once won a National Championship. Today, we work to earn something even more important: lives of meaning and honor.
