A Conversation With a Living Legend® originated in North Texas in 1990 with a live interview concept aimed not only to entertain but also to increase awareness of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center while raising funds to support its mission to end cancer. The event’s successful format has generated a total of more than $37.3 million through events in Dallas; Washington, D.C.; Las Vegas, Nevada; Atlanta, Georgia; Houston; and San Antonio.
The next series of events will be held in Fall 2018. Please see below for details about the Dallas and San Antonio events. Details about the Houston event will be announced soon.
