An Evening with Football Legends on Wednesday, May 3, featured interviews with Peyton Manning and Eli Manning, brought together 550 supporters for a dinner, reception and live auction. The event raised nearly $600,000 for Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center.

In a conversation led by co-host of SportsRadio 610 and former football defensive tackle, Seth Payne, Peyton and Eli Manning discussed their careers and love for football, their family’s life in the spotlight of their football fame, and their dedication to community and philanthropy. In honor of their commitment to raising awareness for pediatric cancer, Dr. Susan Blaney, Director of Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center, presented Peyton and Eli with honorary lab coats.

Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Advisory Board members Julie Bergen and Kathy Zay co-chaired the event.
