NEW STOVE FOR DES MOINES/NORMANDY PARK SENIOR CENTER!
Our nutrition program volunteers are HAPPY with our new 2015 Vulcan Stove purchased with Bayside Brunch Funds by the Des Moines Legacy Foundation. Installed Sunday, May 3, at Des Moines/Normandy Park Senior Activity Center, the new stove replaces a 1964 stove that was way past its prime to cook daily nutritious meals for seniors sixty and older. THANK YOU DES MOINES LEGACY FOUNDATION AND TO ALL OF OUR BAYSIDE BRUNCH SUPPORTERS…..especially Anthony's HomePort!!




Vegas Lights Casino Night 2015
Once again the Des Moines Legacy Foundation has put the FUN in fundraising.

The thump of rolling dice and periodic shouts of "21" echoed throughout the Des Moines Field House as partygoers enjoyed games of chance at the 2015 Casino Night.

The games were followed by both silent and live auctions for the more serious purpose of raising scholarship funds for needy kids to participate in the activities and programs of our Des Moines Parks, Recreation and Senior Services department.

There was some serious eating, too, thanks to the fabulous heavy hors d'oeuvres from Lavish Roots and luscious desserts from the Dessert Dash.

Event coordinator Yvonne Nutting and the crew of volunteers for the event say "thanks" to all the generous people who came together to display their commitment to helping kids.

For those who were unable to attend but still want to help the kids can donate at the foundation by clicking the Donate button at the top of the website.

And don't miss our next great FUNdraiser! Save the date for our 16th annual Bayside Brunch coming on November 1st.

The 50/50 Raffle Winner was Rick Scott! He graciously donated all of his winnings back to the Foundation!
