On Thursday, October 11th, The Magdalen House is excited and honored to host Elizabeth Vargas at our Leave a Legacy: An Evening with Elizabeth Vargas dinner presented by Ben E. Keith Foundation Trust at Fashion Industry Gallery in the heart of the Downtown Dallas.

As an award-winning anchor and correspondent, Vargas has traveled the world covering breaking news stories, reporting in-depth investigations and conducting newsmaker interviews. Currently the co-anchor of ABC’s 20/20 with David Muir, Vargas was credited by The New York Times for reinvigorating the newsmagazine format with her “intellectually brave” reporting.
