The heat has descended early this year, but the best way to beat the heat is to grab your friends and get ready to party, because Surf’s Up! OakBend Medical Center is the title sponsor for the 2011 Surf’s Up, School’s Out, with the Triumphs, benefitting the Lamar Educational Awards foundation (L.E.A.F.).
The dinner, dance and auction will be May 6 at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds. Dinner is served from 6:30 to 8 p.m., with a live dessert auction following immediately. The dance starts at 8:30 p.m. with entertainment by Fort Bend County’s favorite party band, The Triumphs.
