For the second year, Notre Dame's Athletic Department helped give several South Bend families a very merry Christmas.
The department and sports teams adopted 29 disadvantaged families and treated them to a night full of festive fun at the Compton Family Ice Arena Sunday.
"We're excited about being here," said South Bend resident Vanessa Bustamante. "We don't do a lot of family stuff. It's costly with a family of six to go out and do stuff."
But the Bustamante family got to enjoy a rare night out, thanks to the ticketing and marketing departments, who adopted them.
