The Pacelli Booster Club was founded as an organization whose purpose is to support athletic and extracurricular activities at Pacelli High School. Our mission statement reads: “The Pacelli Booster Club’s mission is to foster an environment that inspires athletes, students, coaches, parents, and the community to collectively create a positive and spirited atmosphere for all athletic, and extracurricular programs.”

The hard work of many volunteers over the years has served to promote strong programs for the benefit of our Pacelli students. In addition to subsidizing athletic expenses, the club has helped with expenses for the theater program, music program, yearbook, the middle school annual trip to Eagle Bluff, after prom party, and many other activities that help to enhance the student experience at Pacelli High School.

The Pacelli Golf Day, which will take place at Meadow Greens Golf Course on June 15, has been our most important fundraiser. This year marks the 39th year in which this event has been sponsored by the Pacelli Booster Club.

In 2007 the Pacelli Booster Club added a Hall of Fame Banquet in the evening as a part of this annual event. It is an opportunity to recognize former athletes and coaches who made significant contributions to the history of Pacelli athletics. This year’s inductees include: Francis Deig, coach in the 1930s, Dale Vaughan, class of 1950, Dale Felten 1971, Lori Mittag 1973, Ryan Bickler 1996, Amy Bickler 2002, and Kellen Blaser 2006.

In addition to these individuals we are also recognizing the members of the 1958 state champion basketball team (60th  anniversary) and the 2018 state champion Lyle-Pacelli girls basketball team.

Anyone interested in joining us in our Pacelli Golf Day event or attending the Hall of Fame banquet is encouraged to sign up. Information can be found on the Pacelli Schools website at pacellischools.org or by calling the Pacelli office at 507- 437-3278.

Hope you can join us on June 15.
