Exchange Club of Sugar Land spaghetti fundraiser – a huge party with a goal $115,000 for Fort Bend non-profits
Friday’s Spaghetti Dinner hosted by the Exchange Club of Sugar Land, at its annual fundraiser, is one of the best parties in Fort Bend. The head turner this year was the FBISD police department, with officers dressed and performing as the Village People. They couldn’t help but get the Best Presentation award with their YMCA rendition on stage seen up close by event honorary chairs Bob and Carol Brown.
At its 27th fundraiser, the carefully planned occasion turned out to be another sure entertainer, with this year’s success measured by the over 2,000 attendees raising $115,000 to help non-profit organizations in Fort Bend County.
The family event at Flour Corporation witnessed spaghetti teams in a cook-off contest serving heaping ladles of spaghetti sauce over generous noodles.
The meal came with garlic bread, salad, and a drink at a cost intended for the benefit of the community with the live and silent auctions featuring items donated by supporters adding to intended goal of the festive “party.”
Almost like expert chefs from TV food networks, the local law enforcement agency reps and firefighters serving the Italian classic were all winners.
Particular standouts this year are best sauce winners in 1st place – Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, which took home the trophy; 2nd place – Sugar Land Police Department; and 3rd place – Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse.
Kudos to all the volunteers of this mega fundraiser!
