Our Events & Campaigns

This fund is used to enhance the overall work experience of our employees with disabilities and ensure the stability of their future at Lafayette.

Here is a listing and description of all of Lafayette’s fundraising events and campaigns. If you have any questions please call Mary Beckerle, Development Director at 636-227-5666 x1127 or email Mary at mbeckerle@lafayetteindustries.com.
