If you’ve been following us throughout the year, you know that we’ve been proudly celebrating our 70th year of LEGACY in 2022. We’ve had numerous occasions to celebrate, but the culminating event of the year will be our Annual Benefit at LEGACY Center on September 17th. The night will honor longtime LEGACY supporter and Board Member, Alan Lindy, and feature special guest MaliVai “Mal” Washington.
This is sure to be LEGACY’s biggest and most successful fundraiser yet. Help us take our impact further and better the lives of Philadelphia youth by joining us. You won’t want to miss this extra special evening!
