2016 Legacy Awards Gala Highlights

The Legacy Awards is not only the biggest and most important fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta, but it is also a night to celebrate our Bigs and Littles, to honor outstanding community leaders and to thank our generous donors and corporate sponsors.

Almost 600 guests were welcomed to the St. Regis - a record number for the event - and by the end of the evening another record was broken as it was announced that $850,000 had been raised through sponsorships, silent and live auction and general donations.

The prestigious event was chaired by Mary A. Laschinger (Veritiv Corporation) and honored three extraordinary individuals: Shan Cooper (WestRock) and Egbert Perry (Integral) each received the Legacy Award for their significant contributions to their professions and the Atlanta community, and Meredith Leapley (Leapley Construction) received the V. Thomas Murray Founder’s Award for her loyalty, commitment and influence on the agency.
