The HyVee/Sanford Legends for Kids banquet and events have been a huge part of our community since they started back in 2005.

On Wednesday, the event and its organizers announced that this year, they will make an $87,000 donation to area youth sports programs and opportunities.

It's another huge win for our area's charitable giving and provides yet another boost for youth sports that continue to thrive.
