To achieve that, they’ve set a goal of raising $25,000 over the next few weeks. For a number of years, raising that kind of money came easy to Legacy: Make a call to Leslie Jordan who would jump on a plane and fill a theater — cash raised.
But Jordan’s become one of the hottest stars on TV. Currently, he’s starring in Call Me Kat and can’t get away. So Legacy is raising money the old fashioned way — pleading with supporters one last time while Grove as executive director. “I’m so honored they decided to do this in my honor,” Grove said. “The best gift they could give me is letting me leave knowing Legacy is in good shape.” When Grove took over as executive director, the agency was expected to close before long.
