Last Saturday, 7th September 2013 was the Legacy Defence Force Charity Ball. It was a momentous day for many reasons; not only did we have a change of government and a Wallabies football game, but the annual Australian Aerospace Defence Charity Ball supporting Legacy as well. Over 700 guests were on their feet applauding the bravery of Ms Beckie McKinney, as she told her heroic story, and the invaluable support Legacy provided to her and her two children.
As an ex-defence force member myself, supporting Legacy is something that I am very passionate about. For the second consecutive year running, Xennox Diamonds was again proud to support Legacy and the Defence Charity Ball by donating a $10,000 diamond tennis bracelet. More than 500 tickets were sold on the night and the winner was one very lucky lady.
Legacy Defence Force Charity Ball – 2nd chance draw
Don’t worry if you missed out on winning the bracelet. We have decided to offer everyone that attended the Ball and entered our second chance draw the chance to win a $2,000 pair of diamond stud earrings as our way of saying thank you for supporting Legacy.
The lucky winner is…….
Legacy is a voluntary organisation providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the death of a spouse or parent during or after their defence force service. Legacy currently cares for over 100,000 widows and 1,900 children and dependents throughout Australia.
