Legacy presents four annual signature events Annual Luncheon, Mint Julep, Schmooze and The Frank Billingsley Golf Classic. During the year, there are additional events, including third party events that benefit our programs and services.
Annual Luncheon This festive champagne luncheon kicks off the Fall social season. Started in 2003, this event gathers supporters to pay tribute to philanthropic leaders from the Houston community. In 2015, proceeds from the event benefited the H-E-B Little Readers Fund at Legacy. The 2017 Luncheon will be held on October 3.
Mint Julep In 2003, two employees had a casual conversation for raising money for Legacy’s HIV/AIDS services. Start with some sequins, add big false eyelashes, a spotlight and a stage and it is now a legendary LGBT event in Houston. The show features some of the top performers from the community and recognizes LGBT leaders with the honorary titles of Miss, Ms. & Mr. Julep. Proceeds go to Legacy’s comprehensive HIV education and support services, and specialized programs that include Nutrition, Wellness, Eye Care, and Behavioral Health to people with HIV/AIDS. This event is held in July. More information about this year’s event can be found here.
Schmooze The Holiday Party of the season! Started in 1997, the Holiday Schmooze, a two-hour cocktail party in a private Houston residence, has been the winter season’s premier fundraising event to raise money for HIV/AIDS programs and services. Key values that contribute to the event’s success are 1) a residential open house with interesting architectural and interior design, 2) an abundance of service, 3) a festive yet informal atmosphere, 4) creative fare, a 5) a very brief program. Some to the city’s most philanthropic and influential people attend this exclusive event to schmooze. This event is held in December of each year.
Schmooze will be held on December 7, 2017. For more information and to purchase your tickets, click here.

The tournament is played at Golf Club of Houston on the Tournament Course – home of the Shell Houston Open. Past foursomes have included top corporations in Houston. Proceeds support Legacy’s comprehensive slate of services.
