This year, we are delighted to welcome Tom Brady, Sr. as our keynote speaker. Tom will speak about his experience as a Serra parent and how our school prepares young Padres to become compassionate, community-minded leaders. He is a business leader and a community service advocate who has volunteered with Mission Hospice of San Mateo and has served on the boards of the San Mateo Police Activities League and the San Mateo County Historical Museum. Two organizations close to Tom’s heart are the Lyme Disease Foundation and Eye Shine Foundation, which supports recreation for visually impaired youth and adults.

History of Fund a Dream

In 2005, we established our Fund a Dream Scholarship Benefit to raise the additional funds necessary to ensure that all qualified applicants who dream of becoming a Serra Padre are afforded that opportunity.

To date, this event has provided more than $4 million in support of its financial aid program. We invite you to help make a young man’s dream come true by supporting our Financial Aid Program. Together, we will continue Serra’s mission for future generations.
