16th Annual Fund a Dream

Scholarship Benefit

Saturday, March 14, 2020

We are excited to announce this year's Keynote Speaker

Father Joe Bradley '73

This year's keynote speaker for our annual Fund A Dream Scholarship Benefit is Father Joe Bradley ‘73. Author of “The Four Gifts,” Father Joe's honest, yet thought-provoking memoir expresses his gratitude for his journey from addiction to priesthood, with the blessing of four gifts: faith, sobriety, a new heart, and a fulfilling ministry. Father Joe has served as a teacher, chaplain, football chaplain, school president and is the recipient of the 2004 Junipero Serra Award. 



Help make a young man's dream of a Serra education come true!

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.
