“The Legacy and Legends Celebration is, in many ways, our most important event of the Junior League year. The women who are honored are true stewards of our mission.
By honoring them at this community wide event, their stories inspire both our younger members, as well as men and women in the general community to contribute and help build a better Oklahoma City.”

– President, Sara Sweet
