Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava, Ph.D. will be honored at the 28th annual A Conversation With a Living Legend, benefiting The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, on Thursday, Sept. 14 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. This year's theme, "Bridging the Future," will focus on Calatrava's personal contributions to international design and construction, spanning nearly 40 years across 14 countries. His work includes the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge that spans the Trinity between downtown and west Dallas.

Chair Su-Su Meyer and chair-elect Wade Nowlin Jr. will host Calavatra as he shares insights on his professional and academic career. This annual event supports MD Anderson's Moon Shots Program, an accelerated, comprehensive effort to significantly reduce cancer deaths and transform cancer care.

Tables of 10 can be purchased starting at $3,000, beginning in August. For more information about purchasing tickets, email events@mdanderson.org or call 866-262-9029 and press “1” to leave a message.

For the past 28 years, A Conversation With a Living Legend has held the spotlight on former heads of state, professional athletes, prominent journalists, popular entertainers and more. The intimate onstage chat, aimed at not only entertaining guests, but also increasing awareness and raising funds for MD Anderson, was conceived by Lyda Hill. Replicated across the nation, the successful event model has raised more than $33 million for cancer treatment, prevention and education programs at MD Anderson.
