2012 CRYSTAL BALL
April 27, 2012
La Salle High School held its 13th Annual Crystal Ball, titled “Bootleggers Ball,” on April 27 at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. The night was filled with fun, fellowship, dinner and dancing, but there was also the thrill of the pursuit while bidding on several dozen items during the live and silent auctions. Auction items included tickets to the "American Idol" season finale taping, a trip to the 2013 Masters Golf Championship, a six-night South African safari, or VIP tickets to see the the Lakers play at home in a private luxury suite in the Staples Center.
Over 400 guests came to congratulate this year’s Crystal Ball honoree: La Salle’s Principal, Patrick Bonacci, AFSC, P’94, ’97. Pat was selected as the recipient of the 2012 Lasallian Award. Pat served at La Salle for the past 27 years, initially as Assistant Principal and then as Principal for the last 15 years. Pat will become the Vice President for Mission on July 1, 2012.
The Crystal Ball is La Salle’s largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from the evening help support our academic, athletic, student life, arts and financial aid programs.
