ND basketball auctions off items for Hurricane Sandy victims

Posted:

Actual uniforms worn by the Irish against Kentucky, a game ball, and courtside tickets. They could all be YOURS!

"They are all great one of a kind items for an opportunity to be a part of Notre Dame basketball," says assistant athletics director, Josh Berlo.

Through an online auction, one lucky bidder could hit the jackpot.

"They are certainly collector's item. Any fan of Notre Dame basketball can appreciate them and to be able to have them and own a part of Notre Dame basketball history while also benefiting charity and helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy is just a great opportunity," says Berlo.

To raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims, the men's basketball program started an online auction. There are the uniforms and experiences too. You could bid on a chance to be at practice with the Irish.  

"They're all priceless. The courtside seats for the Georgetown game will be very, very, I think sought after. I expect some pretty high bids. There is nothing like sitting courtside and have the opportunity to potentially get sweat on by the players," says Berlo.

The basketball team has a connection to the east coast. Head coach Mike Brey says he's longtime friends with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

"My feeling was with the state university of New Jersey, Rutgers coming out here January 19, could we get Governor Christie here personally to watch the game? He is a hoops fan," says Brey.

Brey says Christie is taking him up on the offer.

"And that we have the governor here where we can make a personal acknowledgement and give him a check for help I think is very powerful," says Brey.

And with over ten items for sale, Coach Brey hopes to raise a lot of money to send back to New Jersey with his friend.

"He really follows our team and is a great fan," says Brey.

The auction goes until January 17. To bid click here.
