Believe Benefit Dinner - October 22, 2022
Take a look behind the scenes of Believe 2022 with our photo gallery!
The drizzly weather did not dampen the spirits of our enthusiastic Believe guests. With more than 360 in-person 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 a generous attitude to Believe this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered, attended, and donated to make this evening so successful. Here’s what we accomplished together!
- Thanks to our generous La Salle community, together we raised more than $408,000 during Believe, far surpassing our goal of $350,000!
- A record-breaking $213,000 was raised in the Dollar for Scholars paddle raise, exceeding our goal of $190,000. All proceeds from this paddle support tuition assistance for La Salle families this school year. A special thank you to Jim ’77 & Linda Pliska and Albina Fuel for both offering a generous $10,000 matching gift and a second thank you to Jim ’77 & Linda Pliska for offering a second matching gift of $30,000. We could not have achieved this record-breaking achievement without you!
- Additionally, together we raised more than $42,000 for the main hallway renovations, exceeding our goal of $30,000. These renovations will modernize the hallway and reinforce our Lasallian and school values while also creating a more inviting and hospitable environment for our students and guests. Thank you to Albina Fuel and an anonymous donor who BOTH offered a generous matching gift of $5,000 to help us meet our goal.
We are sincerely grateful for your amazing generosity and look forward to seeing you next year at Believe 2023!
