As part of its three-event Legacy Society Member Exclusive series, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation recently hosted donors who either have a fund at the Foundation or have an estate gift planned for their favorite causes during an “Evening of Entertainment” at the Community Hub at its Foundation office on Jan. 24.
Legacy Society members enjoyed a cocktail reception followed by “Oh What a Night! A Jersey Boys Evening” performance by the Gulf Coast Symphony at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
Legacy Society members include any individual who has established an endowed fund, made a one-time gift or informed the Community Foundation that, upon his or her passing, a gift will be established. Being a member of the Community Foundation’s Legacy Society provides opportunities for meeting other supporters of the Foundation and developing new friendships.
