Rob Lowe began his national acting career in the 1979 television series, A New Kind of Family. In his rise to fame that followed, Lowe has become one of Hollywood’s most highly-acclaimed triple threats – as an actor, author, and producer. Rob’s brilliant career includes starring roles in movies such as The Outsiders, Oxford Blues, About Last Night, Bad Influence, St. Elmo's Fire, Wayne's World, and Tommy Boy. His Emmy-nominated work in TV includes the hit television series The West Wing and Parks and Recreation, and television films Killing Kennedy and Behind the Candelabra. Rob was nominated for a Golden Globe for FOX’s The Grinder and he’s currently starring in CBS’ Code Black.

Rob released his memoir, Stories I Only Tell My Friends in 2011. The book was an instant hit, spending consecutive weeks in the top four of The New York Times best-sellers. His second book, Love Life, was published in 2014 and also landed a spot on the NY Times Best-Seller list.

With over 27 years of sobriety, Rob attributes his wife as the inspiration to get sober and describes his journey through recovery as the path that brought him everything he values in life.

On his 25th  sobriety anniversary he tweeted. "To those struggling with addiction, there is true, real hope, 25 years ago today, I found recovery; and a life of promise. #Grateful"

The Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series

The Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series was created in memory of June and Virgil Waggoner’s son Jay, who died of alcoholism at the young age of 36. Since 1999, this charity event has gained national recognition and the Spring Luncheon is one of the largest philanthropic gatherings in Houston. Since its inception, the Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series has been promoting a healthy, addiction-free lifestyle and the benefits it brings to the entire community.
 
The Spring and Fall Luncheons each attract more than 1,000 attendees and raise a combined total of close to $1,000,000 each year to directly fund The Council’s many programs that help individuals and families affected by alcoholism, drug abuse, other addictions, and co-occurring mental health disorders. As these rising problems continue to affect our community, governmental funding of prevention and treatment programs is steadily declining. The Council's efforts to fill this critical service gap have made our fundraising needs more important than ever, especially since we turn no one away.
