The Annual Alumni Spaghetti Dinner

A Special Celebration of Laurence Freeman '82
November 11, 2021 
Beginning at 6:00 p.m.

The annual Spaghetti Dinner, one of Rockhurst’s longest standing events, was originally held to honor the work of the school’s very first alumni director, Rev. Mario T. Puricelli, SJ. It is only fitting that, in 2021, we honor a man who has carried Fr. Puricelli’s mantle for more than a generation. “Fr. Purch’s spirit lives on” every year at this special friend-raiser, and this year will be no exception.
Laurence Wade Freeman ’82, one of the most committed servants of Rockhurst, will conclude nearly three decades of service to the school at the end of December, and this year’s Dinner will honor his tremendous dedication and service. We invite you to celebrate and congratulate Laurence, surrounded by classmates and other alumni during this evening of brotherhood in the Jesuit tradition.

While this is a no-cost event for alumni, gifts are welcome at the door via credit card, cash, or checks made payable to Rockhurst High School. You may also make a donation to the Annual Fund through the registration form below.
