The inaugural Legendsfest, organized by Legends of the Field President and CEO Jim Lindenberg, brought in more than $10,000 in monetary and item donations to benefit The Women's Center.

The event, held Sept. 6 at Naga-Waukee Park in Delafield, brought in monetary donations totaling $7,515, and featured a "Stuff the Bus" campaign that resulted in an estimated $3,000 worth of donated goods.

Attendees at Legendsfest had the opportunity to get autographs from Wisconsin sports legends, including Gilbert Brown, Rollie Fingers, Keith Tozer and Ron Dayne.

"I'm very proud of the fact that we were able to deliver a full bus and a full trailer of items to The Women's Center," said Lindenberg, "and I'm so impressed with all the volunteers who were willing to help us benefit The Women's Center. The event was a great success and a great partnership."

Legends of the Field is a Hartland-based sports memorabilia and marketing company..
