Notre Dame hockey coach Jeff Jackson has issued a challenge to Fighting Irish hockey fans to vote for him as “the best-dressed man in a kilt” to help raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Michiana for the 2011-12 campaign.

The “Men in Kilts” fundraising effort that is held for the local Ronald McDonald Family Room.  The facility provides a free overnight stay at the Ronald McDonald House Family Room for the parents of critically ill children.  

Jackson is one of 17 participants that have joined forces in this unique promotion in an effort to raise money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald charities in the South Bend and Mishawaka region.

Jackson is counting on all Irish fans to jump on board to help with this cause by casting a vote for him at www.meninkilts.org.
