Last Sunday’s Des Moines Legacy Foundation’s 20th annual Bayside Brunch FUNdraiser was all about high school days, and it raised over $30,000!

The entire first floor at Anthony’s restaurant was filled with cheerleaders, graduation caps and gowns, athletes, prom dates and much more.

As one guest said:

“This is a magical event and a magical day!”

And it was magical to see the continued support from 100 guests, who with their generosity and care for the Des Moines community raised $12,375 for recreation programs for low income youth, and a little over $18,000 for senior services and programs in Des Moines.

As always, the staff at Anthony’s restaurant – who volunteer their time for this annual event – went all out with excellent service, excellent food, and excellent support.

“It is wonderful folks like those who attend Bayside Brunch who help the Des Moines Legacy Foundation continue their mission into their 22nd year, to make Des Moines a better community through parks, recreation, senior services and the arts.”
