About the Event

Notre-Dame de Paris welcomes more than 12 million visitors each year, making it one of the world’s most popular monuments. However, this beloved 12th century Gothic cathedral is suffering. Its gargoyles, pinnacles, rose windows, and basic infrastructure face irreparable damage from issues like pollution, rain, and the quality of stone used during a previous renovation. If left unattended, the monument could face a partial collapse.

All proceeds of this event will support the Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris and its mission of restoring the cathedral.

Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds to accelerate the restoration of the iconic Paris cathedral. The organization allows US citizens to make tax deductible contributions to the estimated $185 million renovation of this historic landmark. Learn more about the organization
