Take a trip back in time as you step into a pop-up 1920s speakeasy for the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation’s fall fundraiser on Thursday, November 5th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. You’ll have the password as you enter Anson Aviation at Sugar Land Regional Airport for libations, fine fare, music and maybe a friendly game of chance at the casino. Expect surprises as entertainment pops up throughout the evening.

“This is our first event that recognizes a past time in our nation’s history,” said Executive Director Dennis Parmer. “The board thought a pop-up speakeasy offered a chance to kick up our heels to celebrate our inaugural fundraiser.”

The Sugar Land Heritage Foundation’s mission is to preserve the history of Sugar Land and create its future Museum. Event proceeds will help make possible the future Heritage Museum in an historic Imperial Sugar building on U.S. 90 at Main Street.

Sterling McCall Automotive Group is the presenting sponsor. Sponsorships are still available by calling 281-494-0261. Individual tickets to the fall fundraiser are $35.
