Silent & Live Auction: LAS Scholarship Program

9 of last 10

Valedictorians were scholarship students

Compassion is an important component of our mission statement. Throughout the academic year, we look for ways to incorporate compassionate acts into the lives of our students and faculty. An inspiring example of this was the response to the devastating earthquake in Mexico on 19 September 2017. The LAS community, led by students from Mexico City and a 5x gift match from the Carlos Slim Foundation, raised $30,000 for the relief effort. During this event, we want to bring a similar experience to you. This weekend is about fun, excitement, and shared experiences. There is no better way to translate these into compassion than through the energy of an auction that supports a future LAS scholarship student. We ask each guest or couple who would like to participate, to bring an item of value to the event registration at Mamita's Beach Club.
