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

Legacy’s Annual Luncheon began 15 years ago to pay tribute to Houston’s philanthropic leaders. Proceeds from the event benefit the H-E-B Little Readers Fund at Legacy. Last year’s luncheon became a cocktail party, co-chaired by Elizabeth Petersen, Melissa Mithoff and Katherine Murphy. Shannon Hall and Marcus Sloan were our honorees. Check out the photos here.

Our 2018 luncheon is scheduled this fall. For sponsorship information please call 832-200-7150 or email

Mint Julep

In 2003, a casual conversation about raising money for Legacy’s HIV services turned into one of Houston’s legendary LGBT events. Mint Julep dazzles with big hair, outrageous costumes, false eyelashes and incredible performances. This year’s show will premiere in July.

Mint Julep 2017 honored The Diana Foundation, Bryan Hlavinka, and Jani Lopez and was emceed by Domenic Cusano and Ginger Grant. Thank you to our Presenting Sponsors Lymphedema Institute, Inc. & White Rhino Financial and to our Top Notch Sponsor University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. Photos from the event can viewed here.



Schmooze Schmoozejpeg

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 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.

Photos from previous events can be found on Legacy’s flickr page.



Derby-Day-201Derby Day

Derby Day is the official kick-off for Mint Julep, hosted during the Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby in May.
