One of the most sought-after tickets on the Fort Bend County social circuit, the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation’s 12th Annual Founders’ Ball, returns for what is expected to be another record-setting evening to raise funds for the historic Sugar Land Auditorium.

This year’s event, “SLCAF in Revue: Past & Present,” will be held Saturday, January 18, 2014 at the Safari Texas Ballroom in Richmond featuring a musical tribute to Sugar Land’s history as created and directed by renowned director and choreographer Michael Tapley.

Individual tickets are $100 and underwriting opportunities start at $1,250 for a table of 10. Live and silent auction items also will be available. The attire is black-tie optional.

Proceeds from the evening will continue the restoration of the Sugar Land Auditorium as a cultural arts center for the community. Since its inception, the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation has raised more than $1 million to restore the Sugar Land Auditorium.

Most recently, funds helped replace the venue’s floorings, upgrade lighting and tint its windows. As a result, the fully functioning, 400-seat theater is booked year-round for performances, lectures and meetings.

This year’s gala honorees, representing Sugar Land’s past and present, are former Sugar Land Mayor Bill Little (who served from 1961- 1964) and current Mayor James Thompson. The event is chaired by Sonal Bhuchar, past president of the Fort Bend Independent School District, and Subodh Bhuchar, a leading Sugar Land area family physician.
