MAC 31st Annual Luncheon

Monday, December 2, 2019

Humble Civic Center

Since its inception, MAC has hosted a luncheon on the first Monday in December. The success of this luncheon has led to the majority of our contributions to research. To date, MAC has donated more than $6.5 million to Texas Children’s Cancer Center for children’s cancer research.

The luncheon is fun and exciting with raffles and silent and live auction items. You'll meet this year's honorees and maybe shed a tear or two. Most important, you'll also be contributing to lifesaving research.

This year's luncheon is catered by Tony's of the Vallone Restaurant Group! Sponsors are invited to the Auction/Raffle Preview and Champagne Reception held before the luncheon from 9:30 - 10:00 a.m. and will be treated to passed hors d'oeuvres. Everyone will enjoy a fabulous lunch.

2019 Honoree

 Charlotte Blazei

Charlotte Blazei

Our 2019 honoree is Charlotte Blazei, the 6-year-old daughter of Natalie and Danny Blazei, the sister of Sadie and Jack, and the granddaughter of former MAC member Susan McElroy. Charlotte is a patient at Texas Children’s Cancer Center and was diagnosed with Gamma Delta Acute T-Lymphoblastic Leukemia Lymphoma, an incredibly rare form of T-Cell ALL that’s almost never seen in children. Charlotte’s brother, Jack, is her bone marrow transplant donor.


Since 1989, MAC selected an honoree for the annual luncheon. Sometimes it has been a doctor; at other times it has been a child who has had to face cancer. Click here for a list of all the MAC luncheon honorees.
