Legends Luncheon Home the memorial Legends Luncheon


The annual Legends Luncheon presented by Nationwide has swiftly become a cherished and important fundraising event for Central Ohio. The Legends Luncheon brings to life the alliance between the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. All proceeds of the Legends Luncheon directly benefit the young patients treated and cared for each day at Nationwide Children’s. The goal of the Luncheon is to increase awareness of and further advance the incredible care given in the most needed areas of Nationwide Children’s. 

Guests of the Legends Luncheon presented by Nationwide experience a unique and entertaining charity event featuring an opportunity to enjoy a rare and special conversation with the Memorial Tournament Host and a legend of the game. Past special guests include: Johnny Miller (2016), Sir Nick Faldo (2015), Annika Sorenstam (2014), Jim Furyk (2013), Steve Stricker (2012) and Nancy Lopez (2011).

Legends Luncheon presented by Nationwide annually culminates with a recognition award presented by, and in the name of, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus. The “Nicklaus Youth Spirit Award” is given to a young citizen who in some way has demonstrated a strong, driving spirit in overcoming obstacles, an unwavering optimistic outlook, and a strong conviction for their connection to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Whether it is by leadership in their community or simply personification of a strong spirit, a patient of Nationwide Children’s Hospital can inspire not only their family and loved ones, but also the community that surrounds them. The Nicklaus Youth Spirit Award will honor the courage within that inspires volunteerism and community outreach and has a positive influence on others.
