Surrounded by friends, family and supporters from across the country, Bree and Stephen Sandlin hosted a sold-out premiere of Conquering Kilimanjaro in Houston, Texas. Thanks to a donation match through Amplify Austin and Car2Go, the couple was able to fonate $8,760 to the LIVESTRONG Foundation, in support of cancer fighters and survivors worldwide.
125 people attended the screening at Alamo Drafthouse, which was preceded by a VIP reception at El Tiempo Cantina. The Sandlins are featured in the documentary, along with 14 others who made the climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in February, 2014.
Bree, a cancer survivor, Stephen, filmmaker Marc Middleton, editor Mike Nanus and climb leader Chris Warner answered questions about the summit and the film during a special panel after the premiere.
