The final plans are being made for the inaugural UnGala at Galveston College, which will be from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Oct. 10.
The Ungala has an official theme name of “Hernando’s Hideaway Cabaret Cuba!”
The party will provide one evening with two venues for 200 fortunate guests — Havana by Day and Havana by Night. The Ungala is being held in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing on Galveston College’s campus directly behind the Lighthouse and Beacon Square at 39th Street and Avenue Q.
The UnGala will break all the rules from dress, to food, and entertainment! Proceeds will benefit the College’s respected Health Sciences/Nursing Program and the future Performing Arts Center.
The Music Box Theater-Houston will be a major feature of the Ungala event. The Company is extremely popular and plays to standing room only audiences almost every weekend in Houston.
Corporate sponsorships and underwriter table sales are still available at the following levels: Night of the Iguana, $5,000, Karma Chameleon, $2,500, and Lonely Bull, $1,000. Individual tickets are $150 per person.
