|Melbourne Legacy has a wide range of events throughout the year. A number of those|
events aim to raise funds for Legacy's work and to raise awareness of our services.
Melbourne Legacy Calendar of Events 2016
Legacy Week Pop-Up Concert: Friday 26 August
|Outside the State Library on Friday 26 August, Melbourne Legacy hosted a free pop-up concert to raise awareness about Legacy and have a bit of fun. The Pacific Belles (an Andrews’ Sisters tribute act), six piece jazz band, swing dancers and our MC, Brodie Young, entertained our guests and the general public. |
This was also the first opportunity for the public to get a photo with one of Melbourne Legacy’s newest editions; our 3 Legacy Bear mascots.
Legacy Sunday: 28 August 2016
|Over 400 Legacy Widows and Legatees attended this important annual event that marks the start of Legacy Week.|
This was an opportunity for widows whose husbands served their country to join together to honour and remember them.
