Wow! Thank you to the DeLaSalle supporters who made the October 9 Christian Brothers’ Gala a huge success! We are still counting the gifts, but are happy to report we have raised more than $755,000 dollars in gross revenue to directly support student scholarships. This exceeds the $751,000 record raised last year.

This year’s Gala featured a hybrid event. More than 300 guests attended the event on campus to socialize, bid on auction items, and come together to benefit the students we serve. Several more participated remotely by tuning into a livestream of the Gala program. Attendees included students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the school.

Supporters helped De reach its budgeted commitments in financial assistance and school operations for 2021-22. Simply put, your generosity has an immediate impact. This fall, students have returned to campus for in person instruction. Young women and men are becoming critical thinkers who are grounded in faith and are passionate about service to others. They are discovering that who you are is more important than where you come from or what you have. THANK YOU!

The Gala has become a fixture on the DeLaSalle calendar each October.  The event is staged after months of planning and attention to detail, under the direction of Gala coordinator (and current parent), Jane Spack, and the DeLaSalle Advancement Office staff.
