FORT BEND CARES
ROAD TRIP TO THE SOUTH PACIFIC

Upwards of 550 guests enjoyed a colorful evening at Fluor on Saturday, Jan. 28 to raise funds to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in Fort Bend County. Presenting sponsor of the event was The Pub Fountains, and 11 local restaurants provided delicious food throughout the evening. Entertainment at the event included Polynesian dancers and a fire eater.  Great fun was had by all!  The Road Trip fundraiser is the organization’s largest event of the year and generates most of its funds supporting nonprofit organizations.
