Saturday, October 14, 2023

Tickets on sale NOW!


Event Overview

This year’s event includes:

  • Hosted cocktail hour
  • Dinner
  • Online and live auctions
  • Inspiring messages and performances from current La Salle students
  • Golden Ticket raffle with the opportunity to win your choice from a selection of five trips

Funds raised during Believe make it possible for hundreds of students to receive a Catholic, college-prep education at La Salle–including exceptional academics, transformational opportunities and inspiring core values.

Your support will answer the prayers of families struggling with the cost of tuition in the midst of this inflationary environment. With many families experiencing rising costs all around them, over 60% of students are receiving tuition assistance to attend La Salle. In addition, your support helps us offer the programs that make a Lasallian education so unique–including retreats, immersion trips, extensive service opportunities and much more.

“Believe is critical to our Lasallian mission on many levels,” said La Salle’s Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer Matthew Winningham. “It is the largest fundraising event of the year and significantly impacts our ability to fund need-based scholarships and amazing programming for our students.”

Last year Believe raised more than $400,000 for La Salle’s students. Let’s work together to do even more for the students this year!

Donate An Item

Item donations are a crucial part of all auctions! Not only do item donations provide the foundation for the amazing packages guests bid on, but they also provide the basis for fun bidding wars. And, great bidding wars mean even more funds raised for La Salle students! Here’s what we are looking for this year:

  • A few days at your (or a friend’s) vacation home in Central Oregon, at the coast, in Walla Walla or Ashland or on Mt. Hood
  • Amazing seats at a sports event, such as the Trailblazers, Seahawks or Mariners
  • A gift certificate to your favorite restaurant or service provider (florist, dog groomer, manicure, etc.)

If you would like to make a donation or discuss a donation idea, please contact Caryn Fiedler (, Director of Giving & Donor Relations


Volunteer at Believe

A large event like Believe doesn’t happen without the generosity of volunteer time and expertise. There are many ways to support Believe as a volunteer both in the days leading up to the event and no event day. Volunteers are needed for set-up, registration, live auction, catering assistance, and clean-up. We are grateful for every person who lends a hand!
