Meet new parents, seasoned parents, alumni, staff and friends. A party with a purpose, the evening features both live and silent auctions, dinner and entertainment.

Great Gathering parent parties directly support student scholarships at DeLaSalle while offering DeLaSalle parents an opportunity to connect with other parents in their child’s grade.
The parties provide a fun, casual environment for parents to share their experiences as they and their children navigate high school – from being a 9th grader at a new school to the college admissions process and everything in between. We are finalizing this year’s parties. Check back soon for more information.
