Money raised last year and this year will be donated in honor of Chicago’s friend Paqui Kelly, the wife of Notre Dame’s head football coach Brian Kelly, who is a breast cancer survivor.

Per the group: “Fans in every market will be able to bid on a package that includes a meet and greet with the band, two premium tickets and a chance to sing onstage in concert with the band.

Each winner has an incredible story to tell.”
