Club Cabaret Français Underwriter Bash

LUCHO will be transformed into a famed French cabaret lounge for a celebration of Texas Center for the Missing’s 2017 Gala Underwriters. Come enjoy an evening of entertainment and merriment featuring wine, champagne, cigar bar, door prizes, and more as we honor our Club Cabaret Français Underwriters.

Patrons are encouraged to dress in the spirit of a French cabaret or business attire. Light bites, drinks, cocktails, and characters will all be provided. You and your guests can expect to be swept off your feet, before Club Cabaret Français even opens its doors!
