Black Tie International:
SPA 17th Annual Luncheon


 

Molly Ringwald

 

SOCIETY FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
 17th ANNUAL LUNCHEON

WILL FEATURE GUEST SPEAKER MOLLY RINGWALD,

AUTHOR OF WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Society for the Performing Arts (SPA), bringing the World’s Best to Houston, is thrilled to announce that its 17th Annual Luncheon will feature guest speaker Molly Ringwald, author of When it Happens to You.  This year’s luncheon is being chaired by Melissa and Michael Mithoff.  The luncheon will take place on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 on the Jones Hall Stage, beginning at 11:00 am. 

In 2009, Society for the Performing Arts established the annual Ann Sakowitz Performing Arts Advocate Award to present at its Fall Luncheon each October to commemorate National Arts and Humanities Month.  The Award was named in memory of SPA Founding Board Member Ann Sakowitz for her dedication to the performing arts and her devoted commitment to Society for the Performing Arts.  SPA presents the award each year to an individual who, through their support and advocacy, champions the performing arts. Past recipients include Mrs. Sakowitz’s daughter, Lynn Wyatt, Patricia Hubbard, Patsy Fourticq, and Mariquita Masterson.  This year’s award will be presented to Ginni Mithoff, whose devotion to the performing arts and Society for the Performing Arts is legendary. 

Molly Ringwald (born February 18, 1968) is an American actress, singer, dancer, and author. Having appeared in the John Hughes films Sixteen Candles (1984), The Breakfast Club (1985), and Pretty in Pink (1986), Ringwald is part of the 80's "Brat Pack" and has been called the greatest teen star of all time.  She currently plays Anne Juergens in the ABC Family show The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Ringwald has written two books:  Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, and Finding the Perfect Lipstick is a "memoir and girlfriend-y guide to girlfriend-y things, style, food, relationships, and motherhood and was written in 2010.  In 2012 she wrote When It Happens to You: A Novel in Stories, which is a novel told in stories centered around Phillip and Greta, a couple whose marriage is floundering.

The proceeds from the luncheon provide the necessary funds needed for SPA’s Education and Outreach Program, Beyond the Spotlight that takes the performing arts into the community to

present unique learning experiences enriching the lives of more than 120,000 underserved

children and adolescents in the greater Houston area annually. SPA’s educational programming includes Master Classes, Residencies, Teacher Workshops, Lecture/Demonstrations, Creative Writing/Choreography Programs, Student Matinees and Transportation Funding, plus performance tickets free of charge to Houston’s most underserved students. Research shows that academic performance improves and dropout rates go down when students are involved in the arts.

Since 1966, Society for the Performing Arts has built a reputation as the most innovative community-oriented nonprofit presenting organization in Houston. 

Last season, more than 100,000 Houstonians enjoyed SPA’s performances.  Underwriter opportunities for tables of ten begin at $3000.  Individual tickets begin at $300.  For underwriting opportunities and ticket information, please contact William Tayar at 713-632-8103 or email William@spahouston.org.  For interview opportunities, please contact Kathryn Smith at 713-627-8777 or email at stourtellot@aol.com
