BECAUSE of YOU Bayside Brunch 2014 a RUBY RED AFFAIR
A restaurant full of red outfits on Sunday morning, November 2 was all about CARING. The Des Moines Legacy Foundation hosted their 15th annual fundraiser for Des Moines Senior Center and recreation scholarships for Des Moines low income youth.


DMLF Funded Community Contribution
Here's another Legacy-funded community contribution! This beautiful new shuttle will make events at the Beach Park and Marina easier to get to for seniors and the disabled, from the Farmers Market to summer concerts to winter Christmas Ship bonfires! Des Moines Legacy Foundation, the Waterfront Farmers Market, and Des Moines Rotary joined forces to provide this second shuttle vehicle to the City of Des Moines!


DMLF Funds Dance for Parkinson's Program
Dance for Parkinson's is an eight week free program for senior adults who have movement issues. Taught by professional dancers from Seattle Theatre Group, the program is in its fourth year in Des Moines, held at Des Moines/Normandy Park Activity Center. Offered three sessions per year, the music is "live" and so is the laughter! See more about this program under the Projects Page.
