As our first major event, we were able to introduce ourselves and our initial programs, inspire and bring hope to those impacted by liver disease in Texas, and recognize people who make a tremendous difference in our ability to achieve our mission, all while providing some wonderful entertainment.

  • Listen to our experts talk about the burden of liver disease in Texas
  • Recognize honoree, Mark Wallace, President and CEO of Texas Children’s Hospital with the Shahzad Bashir award for Philanthropy and Community Engagement
  • Hear stories from patients and their families
  • Listen to an energetic fabulous concert with Karen Briggs
