April 18, 2018 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

It is an honor and a privilege for me to thank the members of the Beacon of Hope Committee, including Chairperson Rachelle Isaacson and Development Director James Robinson for their phenomenally successful fundraising event on Sunday. Due to the terrible weather that day, this tenacious, hardworking committee managed to change the venue on the morning of the gala from Marine Max to the school gymnasium, while making it look effortless! The event was beautiful, heartwarming, and incredibly successful, raising a whopping $116,050.00 for the De LaSalle Tuition Assistance Fund!! What an accomplishment!!  We are grateful beyond words to members of the Beacon of Hope Committee, De LaSalle Board of Directors, staff members, parents, and community members who came together to support our students who might otherwise not be able to attend our wonderful school. Check out our photos on De LaSalle’s Facebook page and look for our new video soon on the De LaSalle website!

Gratefully,

Lori Riti
