THE SCENE: Scores of San Antonio’s distinguished Sociables attended the seventh annual University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Living Legends Series, where Tom Johnson, the former CEO of CNN, interview former Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice.

THE VIBE: Guests entered the Grand Ballroom of the Marriot Rivercenter for a seated dinner. MD Anderson President Dr. Ronald DePinho offered welcoming remarks and introduced the evening’s speakers. Guests then enjoyed an intellectually dynamic conversation as Mr. Johnson then interviewed Dr. Rice, as they covered myriad topics including Dr. Rice’s career and diplomatic experience.

THE CAUSE: This year’s event Chairs were Claire and John Alexander and Marsha and John Shields. To date, the event has raised nearly $400,000 for MD Anderson’s Moon Shots Program, a comprehensive effort to significantly reduce cancer deaths and transform cancer care. San Antonio Living Legend events have raised a total of nearly $2 million for lifesaving programs, innovative cancer treatment and novel cancer research in less than a decade. The MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston ranks as one of the world’s most respected centers focused on cancer patient care, research, education and prevention.
