Black Tie International:
The Xavier Society for the Blind



On Friday, June 12, the Xavier Society for the Blind will host Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger at a cocktail reception, after which the Notre Dame legend made famous by the film bearing his name will talk about his life, the lessons he has learned, and will be available to answer questions. Rudy is a motivational speaker and has appeared in hundreds of venues throughout the United States.

Fr. John Sheehan, SJ, Chairman of the Xavier Society for the Blind, also a Notre Dame graduate, is excited to be able to present this inspirational figure. “Although he was at Notre Dame after I graduated, the story of his love for the school and his fierce determination to realize his dream have become part of the history and fabric of Notre Dame.  His message of the need to persevere, to never give up, resonates with the blind community, with anyone struggling with medical or physical problems, with members of the Irish community as we anticipate the 100th anniversary next year of the Easter uprising and the move to independence – in short, anyone who has ever had to work hard and struggle to achieve a goal will understand this message, and take new hope and energy with them after they hear this extraordinary man speak.”

After he left Notre Dame, Rudy moved to Nevada where he worked in insurance. He told his story to many people along the way who were inspired and who encouraged him to share it with a wider audience. He began writing and carried his idea to Hollywood. When the movie was produced, he found new opportunities to speak and inspire people to never give up on their dreams. He developed a career as an inspirational writer and speaker. He founded the Rudy Awards Program offering scholarships to children in elementary and middle schools. He will share this and more with the audience.

A VIP reception begins at 6 PM, will permit additional time with Rudy. Each attendee will receive a “goody bag” which includes a signed copy of his book. The younger audience, young adults between the ages of 12 and 20, may attend at a special lower rate. Each adult ticket may “accompany” no more than two young adults.

The general cocktail party will be open at 7 PM, and again, there will be special prices for young adults, accompanied by a regular admission. There will be memorabilia available to purchase, that Rudy will autograph, and information about and the opportunity to support the Xavier Society for the Blind will also be present. There are two levels of direct sponsorship, and a souvenir program for the event will be provided to each participant, and is accepting advertising up to May 15.  

Note that the New York Athletic Club does have and enforces a dress code; jacket and tie for men, comparable business attire for ladies.
