Des Moines Legacy Foundation Events

Annual Sports Night fundraiser for recreation scholarships for low income youth held in early spring at the Des Moines Field House. Our goal is to ensure Des Moines remains a beautiful, healthy, safe, and caring place to raise children and enjoy retirement.

Through recreation programs, we:
  • Address the social, emotional, and physical needs of area youth.
  • Promotes the active involvement in activities in the community.
  • Help youth learn new skills, develop self-esteem, and confidence.
  • Extends youth learning to the world beyond the school's classroom through enriching experiences.
Our auction raises scholarship funds for underprivileged youth to participate in enriching programs such as Camp KHAOS, Club KHAOS, Youth Sports, Youth Enrichment, and Youth fitness programs.

The annual auction is Des Moines Legacy Foundation's primary fundraiser and will be held this year on March 21st, 2014. Your tax-deductible donation will be prominently displayed in our catalog and on site during the auction. Your generosity not only means the gratitude of our parents and staff, but hopefully will bring in new business for you as well!
