Men of La Salle

Welcome to the Men of La Salle Webpage!

The Men of La Salle are all the fathers and guardians of La Salle students. We support La Salle’s mission by strengthening school and family bonds through shared experiences that foster camaraderie, father/son fellowship and community service.

During the school year, we meet on an almost-monthly basis to have a light meal, catch up with old friends and make new ones, stay informed about our sons’ school days through faculty and administrator invited speakers and plan our future activities.

We sponsor several social events such as our Father-Son Golf Tournament, Father-Son Banquet and spring Phillies game.

We help to coordinate service opportunities such as Freshmen Branchout Day, Poor Man’s Supper and monthly meal preparation, dining room service and vegetable gardening at Face to Face in Philadelphia.

In addition, for more than seventy years, the Men Of La Salle have made the generous and unbroken commitment that no student will ever have to leave La Salle due to the death of a primary wage earning parent.

Unfortunately, every year - including 2017-18 - several young men will come to depend on that financial support. 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.

La Salle is a special collection of people and traditions – including the Men of La Salle. We invite you to know these people and to grow this tradition by joining us at meetings as well as volunteering at and participating in our social events and service to ensure the furtherance of our missions.

Feel free to email me with any questions or ideas.

Looking forward to a special 2017-2018 school year on behalf of the Men Of La Salle,

Mike Marek ‘80
President, Men of La Salle
