Loyola Catholic School has received a $500,000 gift from Joe Frederick, Sr. in honor of his parents Lorraine and Jerry Frederick.

School officials say they’ll use the donation to support campus unification projects and scholarship dollars for families.

Frederick owns Buffalo Wild Wings in Mankato and Hutchinson, attended Mankato area Catholic schools, and is a grandfather to current Loyola students.

He said his parents were amazing role models, and there are many stories about their generosity and volunteerism and he wanted to continue their legacy.
