Mark your calendar and make plans to join us as the DeLaSalle community supports students at the Christian Brothers’ Gala on Saturday, October 13, from 5:30-9:30pm.  

The Gala is the one and only all-school fundraiser at De each year, and the event brings together parents, alumni, students, staff and friends of DeLaSalle for a festive evening and a one-of-a-kind cause.  

In 2017, the Gala reached new levels of generosity in the event’s history. With particular gratitude, we again thank Tom ’54 and Sandra Glodek and Roger ’54 and Irma Scherer, each for their generous matching challenge donation toward the Gala’s “Bids for Kids”. We also are grateful for the generosity of over 375 attendees, as we exceeded the challenge match and raised gross revenues of $560,000 in the “Bids for Kids”, live and silent auctions, ticket sales, and more.

Look for your invitation in the mail, but make plans now to volunteer and/or attend the Gala.  Tickets will go on sale in late August and may be purchased individually — or gather a group of eight and buy a President’s Table or Brothers’ table and be close to the action. Individual tickets cost $100 before October 1st and $125 after. Young alumni who graduated between 2003-18 may purchase a ticket for $75. The President’s Table costs $1,800 and a Brothers’ table costs $1,100.

For more information about volunteer opportunities, donations, or tickets, please contact Brenda Irvin, Gala Coordinator, at gala@delasalle.com or 612.676.7655, or visit the Gala webpage.
