The iconic and ever popular Founder’s Ball, benefitting the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation (SLCAF), on January 7 was a resounding success! Approximately 330 attendees converged onto the Safari Texas Ranch for an evening of music, food, friends and auctions.
The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston, a musical, non-profit, all-volunteer company delightfully showcased the popular Gilbert and Sullivan’s operas. The pieces were amusing and entertaining and it was obvious that all their songs were crowd pleasers. They concluded their performance to a rousing applause.
Friends and colleagues dined on a delicious meal while emcee Nancy Olson kept the audience abreast of the evenings proceedings and explained how the auctions would proceed.
The Founders Ball consisted of a silent auction as well as a live auction. All items were auctioned for over $30,000 making both auctions successful.
“My wife Farrah and I were privileged to co-chair this year’s Founder’s Ball,” says Himesh Gandhi. “We thoroughly enjoyed working with our sponsors, committee members as well as an array of talented volunteers who were all committed to ensuring that we raised well- needed funds to continue enhancing the historic Sugar Land Auditorium. It was a memorable evening.”
