An Evening with a Legend

Please check back for more details on our 2020 An Evening with a Legend event. See below for a recap of last year's event.

Our 13th anniversary of An Evening with a Legend honoring NBA Legend, Shaquille O’Neal, was presented by Wells Fargo and raised critical funds for pediatric cancer research at Texas Children’s Cancer Center. This is the largest pediatric cancer and blood disease treatment program in the United States, where all children are treated, regardless of their families’ ability to pay.

To kick off the night, the University of Houston cheerleaders rallied guests into the ballroom where they enjoyed a beautiful seated dinner and an intimate conversation with O’Neal. Moderated by NBC’s American Ninja Warrior host, Matt Iseman, guests were given an inside look at how O’Neal achieved his incredible basketball accolades, as well as his success and unique journey off the court.

Thank you again for supporting this slam-dunk event for Texas Children’s Cancer Center!
