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.
