Held at the beautiful Briscoe Manor, the Puttin' on the Ritz Gala was a BLACK TIE affair and a night to remember. The evening began with a red carpet entrance into Amy's courtyard for COCKTAILS UNDER THE STARS where LIVE MUSIC from local Katy performers provided the perfect backdrop for the beginning of this evening. All guests were then invited to enter Briscoe Manor's main ballroom to join us for a gourmet meal created by the award winning "Behind the Bash" catering company. During this culinary feast, a program, emceed by Dr. Jim Siebert, and consisting of the recognition of the Noyes Fine Arts Foundation's large donors and sponsors, musical performances and featured guest Barbara Lynn delighted and entertained guests. After dinner, the SILENT AUCTION tables went live and guests were able to bid and outbid each other for items donated by local businesses and artisans in the Greater Houston Area. During this time, Dr. Jim Siebert became our auctioneer and facilitated the auctioning of our large live auction items all while guests enjoyed music by Katy's own Matchsticks Band. The event ended with a showstopper musical performance by Rhythm and Blues Foundation Pioneer Award winner BARBARA LYNN where the business community and the fine arts community came together on the dance floor symbolizing their joint effort to build the Katy Grand Theatre and give the performing arts in Katy a home.
