The 411: While digging in with ceremonial shovels, key players joined more than 500 supporters who also celebrated Texas Children's 60th anniversary. The gathering included a handful of children who helped Texas Children's CEO Mark Wallace blow out the candles on a giant birthday cake. Wallace led the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday" and revealed details of the new medical campus. The day's good karma went even further when it was announced that Nordstrom will make Texas Children's the beneficiary of the gala celebrating the retailer's opening of a store in The Woodlands.
