Please join us for our 14th annual An Evening with a Legend, presented by Wells Fargo, benefiting Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers and featuring Nick Saban, Head Coach for the University of Alabama football team. The event will consist of an informal interview with Coach Saban on his achievements and unique journey both on and off the field.

Our honored guest is one of only two coaches ever to win six NCAA national football championships in the poll era. His resounding successes as a head coach, mentor and motivator have also made him an eight-time National Coach of the Year recipient.

In addition to coaching, he and his wife, Terry, are philanthropists for a wide variety of causes: they established Nick’s Kids Foundation for deserving organizations, provided tornado relief efforts in Tuscaloosa, and launched a University of Alabama scholarship fund for first-generation students.

Coach Saban will be interviewed by Emmy-award winning ESPN host Chris Fowler, one of the most respected college sports broadcasters on television. Fowler is the play-by-play announcer for Saturday Night Football on ABC and has also served as host for ESPN's SportsCenter, SportsCentury and College GameDay.

Texas Children's Hospital President and CEO, Mark A. Wallace, will be our Master of Ceremonies.
