The fundraising efforts of the Notre Dame athletic department in conjunction with two home basketball games brought in over a quarter-million dollars worth of donations for relief efforts in Haiti.
Here’s more from the the athletic department’s official release:

Dame donated full gate receipts and net concession revenue from both
games to the relief effort. In addition, a collection organized by the
Notre Dame Student-Athlete Advisory Council raised more than $25,000
from fans and alumni who contributed during the games. The Monogram
Club added a $10,000 matching gift to the student total.
Money raised will benefit short-term needs and long-term rebuilding efforts in Haiti and will be distributed to the , which works to eradicate the debilitating mosquito-borne disease lymphatic ; the , which has served in Haiti since 1944 and was heavily affected by the earthquake; and , the international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States.
