Chris Wragge, CBS Channel 2 News Anchor, served as the evening’s emcee, and introduced Dr. Ronald DePinho, President MD Anderson Cancer Center and Samuel Waxman, who both encouraged all to ‘Collaborate for a Cure’, to beat cancer. The evening raised over $250,000, which will be utilized to fund the Foundation’s leukemia and breast cancer research programs. Great work guys!!
