The Founder's Gala and Dinner Dance was established in 2006 to celebrate the life and works of St. John Baptist de La Salle, the founder of the Christian Brothers and the Patron Saint of Teachers. The mission and philosophy of St. La Salle are exemplified daily by Christian Brothers and lay partners who are committed to the Christian education of young people in a way that touches minds and hearts. The Dinner Dance and Founder's Gala honors St. La Salle and the Lasallian Mission and Philosophy shared not only at La Salle College High School, but around the world.
