Last night, I was privileged to attend a great dinner in New York City, at the Grand ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. It was the inaugural celebration for "Irish Eyes Dinner to Remember" to benefit the Kelly Cares Foundation. A great night, hosted by ND's class of '51, Regis Philbin.

The entire Waldorf environment was spectacular, and very welcoming.

It was a wonderful night for old friends, classmates, and new members of the Notre Dame Family to gather and rekindle old relationships.

The dinner itself was superb, and featured not only great speeches, but wonderful music from Hayley Griffiths, lead singer from "riverdance" and "lord of the dance."

Overall, a great way to raise awareness for Breast Cancer awareness, and to start a proper celebration of St. Patrick's Day!
Go Irish!
