What is the Raffle?
That fun time of year when our students, parents, faculty, alumni and friends join together to raise money for our school, and have a chance to win cash prizes as well! As always, proceeds from the Raffle go directly to support your sons at De La Salle Collegiate, helping to keep tuition as low as possible and to keep De La Salle a blessed place for young men.
