A Special Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2016 Sports Hall of Fame event, one of the largest ever! This event honors athletics and is a celebration of the Lourdes community. The heartfelt speeches by the inductees were amazing. One regular attendee exclaimed, “I don’t know how it can get better every year when it is already great. But, somehow it does.”

Over $10,000 was raised through corporate sponsorships, the silent auction, and ticket sales. This year’s funds will go towards the new Sports Hall of Fame wall at the new school in the gym. Thank you to everyone who attended and see you next September!
