Christian Brothers Dinner

A Christian Brothers Tradition

The mission of the Christian Brothers Dinner is to celebrate the founding of De La Salle Collegiate and pay tribute to the Christian Brothers, lay faculty, staff and the generations of De La Salle alumni and the parents whose dedication and sacrifice have made De La Salle the prominent school that it is today. Proceeds from the annual Dinner enhance the school’s scholarship fund, thereby benefiting future generations of De La Salle students. Please join us for this special evening as we celebrate and commit to our Lasallian mission of providing young men an education that forms their spirit, hearts, and minds, all so they can go out into our world and live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

Each year, the De La Salle Collegiate community gathers to celebrate alumni, parents, and friends of the school who have made an impact on De La Salle students. In addition to being a night honoring those who have contributed to the De La Salle experience, the Christian Brothers Dinner is our key fundraising event that consists of a Silent Auction and a 50/50 raffle with opportunities to support the school in many ways. The Dinner is one of De La Salle's most anticipated traditions!
