Program Objective
The L.A.F. Annual Scholarship Dinner was created with the intent to allow constituents, friend and family of Legacy Associates Foundation to come together in support of our year-round efforts focused on the development of youth. Legacy members interact with and educate guests on the activities, programs, services, achievements and goals of the organization. This opportunity also allows us to provide special thanks and appreciation for the support that empowers the work of our membership, advisory board members and our community partners.

Program Goal
The goal of the Annual Scholarship Dinner is to raise the level of awareness to the programs and services our organization provides within the community for the benefit of youth. Additionally, we seek to raise the maximum amount of support dollars that will allow us to provide scholarships to high school seniors attending a 4-year, accredited institution of higher learning. Scholarships are awarded to deserving students during the summer months of each year. L.A.F. has a goal to raise $25,000 for college-bound students at this year's fundraising dinner.

Event Audience
Community members, family, friends, students, community organizations, past scholarship recipients, representatives of mentor groups, business leaders, etc. Essentially, the event is open to all who desire to support the overall mission and goals of our organization.
