ALUMNI…Here is a great opportunity for you to be a part of the first tapings of "The Price Is Right" with its new host, the very funny
Drew Carey!

Drew is taking over for Bob Barker, a television game show legend. CBS would like to fill the audience with fun, upbeat people (18 and over—who better than Notre Dame alum?!) to help celebrate this new era.

The taping of the show is exciting to watch; you have the opportunity to be a contestant and Notre Dame will receive a $20 donation for everyone associated with the school who attends. Just mention that you are with Notre Dame! It would be great to go in groups of 5, 10 or more because CBS would then guarantee seating.

When: The dates now available are:
August 16, 17
August 28, 29, 30
September 11, 12, 13
Depending on availability there could more dates in the future.

PRICE tapes two shows per day. You would have to be available from either 9am to 2:30pm or 1pm to 6:30pm. You need to have two forms of I.D., a driver’s license and something with your Social Security number on it. A passport can substitute for the driver’s license. Everyone in the audience is a potential contestant unless you have been on contestant’s row or a contestant previously. If you are ineligible to be a contestant, you will still be a more than welcome guest.

How: If you decide you want to take advantage of this fun day, please contact Karen Winchell, Manager, Guest Relations atKaren.winchell@tvc.cbs.com or you can call her at (323) 575-2448.

Please let Karen know that you are from Notre Dame High School and your contact is Barbara Welsh (she is one of our Volunteer & Special Event Coordinators). Also let her know if you are coming with a group.

Where: CBS is located at 7800 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036. It is at the corner of Beverly and Fairfax. You would park at The Grove located directly behind CBS. Parking is not validated. You then walk from the parking lot to Fairfax Ave. and enter the CBS lot on the south/east corner. A Security Guard and/or Page will direct you to the PRICE bench area for check in.

HAVE A GREAT TIME!!! Your Alumni Contact, Nora McGarry
