Events

Events - Geelong Legacy

Geelong Legacy Inc. runs several events during the year to raise funds for Legacy’s work and awareness of Legacy. These include:

Legacy Week


"Keep the Promise Campaign"

Our main fundraising is through badge-selling during Legacy Week – 29 August - 4 September 2016

We are greatly assisted by the National Servicemens Association, RSL Clubs, schools, and by individuals. However, more assistance is always appreciated in this area. We have a wonderful group of supportive businesses in the Geelong region who donate annually to our cause.


Since 1923 Legacy has kept their promise to look after the families of deceased veterans. Buy a badge during Legacy Week and together we can keep the promise. Donate at any Commonwealth Bank branch, call 1800 534 229 or visit legacy.com.au.

Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award

Heats of the Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award are held each year at Murray House. This year heats were held in May 2016

For further information, please contact your local Club or Lisa Bennett, Secretary Executive Services - Melbourne Legacy.

'Operation Friendship Day'

'Operation Friendship Day' is a day on the bay with the co-operation of the Vietnam Veterans Association. The event is held in March each year and is attended by approximately 120 Legacy widows who enjoy an hour of sailing followed by a scrumptious barbecue lunch. This day is the ‘highlight’ of the year for many of our widows held at the heritage listed Osborne House in North Geelong

Fundraising

Geelong Legacy is assisted by local sporting/service clubs by way of golf and bowls events. These include, Geelong RSL, Geelong RSL Bowls Associates and Torquay Golf Club.
