Believe Benefit Dinner

Saturday, October 23, 2021

 

We were blessed with unBELIEVable success at our 2021 Believe Benefit Dinner, and the unwavering support of our community and sponsors! We want to extend our deep appreciation for your faith in our students, mission, and plans for the future. Following are the results that YOU helped us accomplish:

  • With your generous support, we raised more than $335,000! Nearly $174,000 is earmarked for our Dollars for Scholars tuition assistance program. Your gifts help make a Lasallian education—defined by exceptional academics, transformational opportunities and inspiring core values—a reality for families, regardless of financial means. A special thank you to Jim '77 & Linda Pliska for their very generous $10,000 matching gift!

  • Additionally, more than $26,000 was donated to purchase new professional-grade tools and production equipment for our student makers and creators in order to foster student creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration through the production of high-quality digital content. Your gifts will help our students be ready for learning and careers in the 21st century! Thank you to the Hibler Franke Foundation for a generous matching gift of $5,000 to help us meet our goal. 

We are sincerely grateful for your participation and for your amazing generosity. Our extended La Salle community of students, educators, parents, alumni and alumni parents is exceptional – and we are so happy that you are an integral part of it.
