The Legacy Brain Foundation has planned an evening of food, fun and music that will appeal to everyone. We want to take you back in time to an era of mirror balls, platform shoes, slinky dresses and polyester suits. You’ll want to sing along with Donna Summer as she belts out “Hot Stuff” and Gloria Gaynor as she declares “I Will Survive.” As you recall the dance moves from that era – who could forget John Travolta in his white suit? – you’ll want to grab a partner and “shake your groove thing.” The evening’s festivities include a dance contest, so plan to dress as your favorite disco diva or duke.
In addition to dinner, dancing, and drinks, the evening will include a silent auction featuring unique items such as handmade quilts, autographed sports memorabilia and designer handbags.
The Legacy Brain Foundation hosts a large fundraising event each year, as well as a Celebration of Life luncheon to honor brain tumor survivors. There are also other fundraising events throughout the year organized by individuals who donate the proceeds to Legacy Brain Foundation.
Our Mission is to support patients with brain or spinal cord tumors in their communities through public awareness, education, grants and services; creating a better quality of life for patients and their families.
Many brain tumor patients face financial hardship during the course of their illness, therefore the Legacy Brain Foundation established the Legacy Grant which is open to any brain or spinal cord tumor patient living in the state of Texas who requires financial assistance for treatment.
Volunteering your time to assist or promote the Legacy Brain Foundation is a way to make a real difference in the lives of individuals and families when they need it most. Volunteers are welcomed in all areas. There are always events to plan, newsletters to write, and people to contact. "Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little." -Edmund Burke
