March 24, 2009 – Texas Children’s Hospital
Over 800 guests gathered for the fifth annual An Evening with Texas Legends event on March 24, 2009 at the Hilton Americas Hotel to honor Apollo Legends Colonel Buzz Aldrin, Captain Alan L. Bean, Captain Gene Cernan and Captain James A. Lovell, Jr. as they were interviewed onstage by ABC “World News” anchor Charles Gibson.
Chaired by Laura and Rob Walls and Underwriting Chairs Shelley Barineau and Ned Torian, the event raised over half a million dollars for pediatric cancer research at Texas Children’s Cancer Center. Other committee members who helped make this event a success included Houston philanthropist’s Emily Crosswell, Lynn Baird and Susan Solcher.
Many thanks to the Event Committee, our generous sponsors and all who attended for making the 2009 An Evening with Texas Legends a night to remember!
