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

'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|
|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.|
