|SYDNEY LEGACY EVENTS 2016|
Legacy Week - Sunday 28 August to Saturday 3 September
|Buy a badge during Legacy Week and wear it with pride.|
Legacy continues to "look after the misses and the kids"
as promised by our founding fathers and will continue
to do so in the years ahead.
Legacy receives less than 2% of its funds from government,
the rest is generously donated by the public. All funds raised by
Sydney Legacy during Legacy Week go to social welfare programs.
So, dig deep, to support families of veterans who have given their lives or health.
