2022 Gala Honoree
Melissa and Bernie Brown (’81)
This year’s Golden Gala Honorees come from one of the most storied intergenerational families to have ever graced a Catholic School community. Their story began at Bethlehem Catholic in 1948 at the original Becahi on the corner of 4th and Webster. Since then, our Golden Gala Honorees’ family has sent twenty students to Bethlehem Catholic. Each of whom has left their own particular mark on our school community for the last 50 years.
The 2022 Golden Gala Honorees are none other than the family of Bernard ’81 and Melissa Brown. Their family has been exemplary in terms of faith, academics, activity involvement, and athletics, as well as loyal benefactors towards Bethlehem Catholic through the sharing of their time, treasure, and talent over many years.
Bernie and Melissa make a solid team making Becahi better for everyone through their acts of generosity toward Becahi. Bernie and Melissa financially support Bethlehem Catholic through the Becahi PA EITC/OSTC Tax Credit Program, donating to the Becahi Fund, and sponsoring Golf Tournaments for our Athletic Programs. They spend quality time attending sporting and cultural events at school. They are role models of faith for their family and others and represent the positive “can do” spirit in all things related to our school motto, “Fides et Scientia” “Faith and Knowledge.” In doing so, Bernie and Melissa have left an enduring legacy for all of us to follow.
