Some Enchanted Evening

Becca Bragg great idea is worth repeating and that’s what happened Saturday, May 14th. For the third year in a row the businesses of TCRN-Sugar Land hosted their Annual Sugar Land BASH to raise money and awareness for Snowdrop Foundation. The Sugar Land Town Square Plaza served as a perfect venue for families, friends and business owners to join in the fun and support Snowdrop Foundation that raises funds to provide college scholarships for young people…either struggling with cancer or cancer survivors from Sugar Land, Missouri City, Richmond, Rosenberg and Stafford. The evening was emceed by special guest Michael Garfield, the High-Tech Texan, and the crowd was entertained with live music from three different bands. Additional entertainment was provided by a magic performance by “Gen X Magic” sponsored Ameristar Roofing. This was the second time State Farm Scott Wong Agency sponsored the “Tug of War” between the Sugar Land Police Department and the Sugar


Land Fire Fighters Association. This year, the Sugar Land Police Department’s team, led by Officer Wayne Coleman again claimed victory over the Sugar Land Fire Fighters Association. Their leader, Donnie Tomlinson, is already planning for next year’s BASH to claim the title. The “Tug of War” was not the only heated competition, the Principal Tricycle Race sponsored by Fort Bend Toyota challenged local school principals: Jeanna Sniffin from Sienna Crossing Elementary (WINNER), Kellie Clay from Edgar Glover Jr. Elementary, Irma Nurre from Wertheimer Middle School and Jerrie Kammerman from First Colony Middle School. Congratulations, Jeanna Sniffin, your students and teachers should be very proud. Younger racers competed in the “Diaper Dash” sponsored by UpClose Magazine. Look for pictures of the winners in upcoming issues of UpClose.

Terry Kurtz from Second Baptist of Houston experienced the “sweet” taste of victory, narrowly taking the title from Paul Ebert of Oak Lake Baptist Church in the Pastor Cake Eating Contest sponsored by Julie’s Cakes. The night was filled with excitement. Raffled prizes were given out all evening and the big prize was awarded to Amy Mitchell, who won the 2011 Harley-Davidson, provided by Republic Harley-Davidson. This evening of laughter and popcorn, cakes and prizes raised $15,000 for the Snowdrop Foundation. Thank you, TCRNSugar Land!
