Kelly Cares Foundation hosts football program for women

On Tuesday night, the Kelly Cares Foundation co-hosted the fifth edition of Football 101. It is an event that gives women a lesson on football basics.

Along with the teaching session, the women had the opportunity to meet the football coaching staff, learning Fighting Irish football trivia and go to some area restaurants. The women also got to go behind the scenes of the schools football headquarters and practice fields. 

"This event has been supported so well from our community each and every year 600 people supporting an event where it has raised 100,000 dollars each year," said Notre Dame Head Football Coach Brian Kelly. 

The Kelly Cares foundation was founded by Kelly and his wife Paqui.

Proceeds from the event benefit breast cancer awareness and early detection initiatives chosen by the foundation.
