Men of La Salle
Welcome to the Men of La Salle Webpage!
The Men of LaSalle - 70 plus years and still rolling!
The Men of La Salle are all fathers and guardians of La Salle students. For more than seventy years, the Men of La Salle have made the unbroken commitment that no student will ever have to leave La Salle due to the death of a primary wage-earning parent. Although it is difficult to believe, sadly we are called upon 6-8 times every year to serve this mission. Originally a “pass-the-hat” undertaking, those funds are now primarily generated from our joint efforts with the Mothers’ Club at the Auction which takes place each November.
The Men of La Salle also has a social mission, which is to strengthen school and family bonds through shared experiences that foster camaraderie, father/son fellowship and community service. We hope you share our belief that it is our duty to provide the guidance which will allow our boys to prevail as gentlemen.
During the school year, we meet in the library on the first Thursday of each month to socialize. We have a light meal, catch up with old friends and make new ones, stay informed about our sons’ school days through faculty speakers and plan our future activities. We also sponsor several social events, including a Golf Outing in the fall, and our most beloved Father-Son Banquet in the spring.
Additionally, we coordinate service events, such as Freshmen Branchout Day, where Freshman and their Fathers perform various service projects around Philadelphia. Other traditional service events have an undetermined status due to the pandemic.
It is most interesting to note that the majority of our Alumni contributions come from those who received some form of aid while they were attending La Salle College High School. We call this is the Beneficiary Effect – the long-term results of your good deeds.
There are many reasons to love La Salle. It is a special collection of people and traditions. We believe the Men of La Salle epitomizes this love of community and commitment.

The Father/Son Banquet is one of La Salle’s most cherished generational traditions. It is a great opportunity to meet, share a meal and be inspired together. The banquet will include appetizers, an excellent dinner, door prizes for your sons, 50-50 raffles, and music by the Jazz Band.
If you wish to be seated with a specific group, please indicate that on your online registration form. Seating requests will be honored on a first-come basis.
This year’s Freshman Branchout Day saw almost 500 Fathers and Sons provide over 1500 hours of community service to organizations in need. Ranging from Boys and Girls Clubs to local parishes to a home for unwed mothers, this group effort made a significant impact at 23 different sites in the community in just a few short hours, provided life lessons in both teamwork and the need for service to our freshmen, and resulted in a great deal of fellowship as fathers and sons met new friends throughout the day. Next year’s event will be scheduled for approximately the same time of year, in early Fall.
The 2021 Father-Son Golf Outing welcomed approximately 120 players on a beautiful fall day. Brother James kicked off the day with a prayer, and then we all enjoyed a round of golf.
The winning team was Brian and Jack Trymbiski.
The Father with the longest drive was Brian Trymbiski, and the son was Diego Yanez.
The Father that was closest to the pin was Justin Glover, and the son was John Stevenson/

The pandemic has made it difficult for the current junior and sophomore classes to get the full LaSalle experience, including the participation of the Fathers in our meaningful activities. We encourage all Fathers to reach out to us, attend an event, or come to one of our monthly meetings to help us continue our tradition of LaSalle being a school for the whole family. You’ll be glad you did!
