The Exchange Club of Sugar Land recently held its 30th Annual Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser.
The funds raised help support local Fort Bend non-profits including Child Advocates of Fort Bend, Fort Bend County Women’s Center, ESCAPE Family Resource Center, Texana Center for Autistic Children and many more.
Over 800 attendees enjoyed the live and silent auction, raffle prizes, children’s game area and live entertainment. The spaghetti sauce was prepared by Fort Bend ISD, FBC Precinct 4, Sugar Land Police Department, Sugar Land Fire Department, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, Stafford Police Department and Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office. The teams were coordinated by Exchange member Sugar Land Police Chief Doug Brinkley.
The winners of Best Presentation and the Best Spaghetti Sauce were the “Star Wars Team” of Fort Bend ISD officers. Second place winners were the Fort Bend District Attorney’s office dressed as Super Mario Brothers characters. Sugar Land Fire Department took third place in the spaghetti sauce contest. The judges from Crime Stoppers said it was a difficult decision because all the teams cooked great sauce.
