Believe 2023

With more than 300 enthusiastic guests, active bidding in the online auction, and a sold-out Golden Ticket raffle, supporters of La Salle truly brought both a spirit of community and generosity to Believe this year.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered, attended, and donated to make this evening so successful. Special thanks to our amazing Leadership Team who helped shape the evening and the fun packages up for bid.

While the final results are still being tabulated, it’s safe to say our Believe guests were overwhelming in their generosity. Stay tuned for the final, comprehensive results.
