Other table levels include “Wayne’s World” for $10,000, “The Killer Bees” for $15,000 and “The Coneheads” for $25,000. Individual tickets are $500. Other sponsorships are available.

Practically in my backyard again too. Stupid Houstonians...

There was a preview party for this gala on October 28th (I did not know that). I guess it was for, among other things, to show some of the items available for what might be a silent auction, or something. I like this one ... "Sushi with Belushi." :eek:

It's worth a try! :BB: I just read another article about the gala and the cheapest tables are $500 per person not $500 per table like I was foolishly thinking earlier lol. It's a pricey event.

This bash is in 5 days.

“With a theme like Saturday Night Live featuring a performance by Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi as The Blues Brothers, this event will be the party of the year,”

Well the event raised a bunch of money but I still haven't found a pic of Elwood and Zee from that night.

The“Saturday Night Live”gala featured musical guests The Blues Brothers starring Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi. The duo put on a spectacular show featuring such hits as “Soul Man,” “Sweet Home, Chicago,” “Messin’ with the Kid” and more. Many guests were able to join The Blues Brothers on stage, dancing and singing the blues.

Anybody else think it looks like Dan Aykroyd has lost some weight? Maybe for the new Ghostbusters movie... and hopefully a new Blues Brothers movie after that!! :)

There are any vids from thay day? I'd love to see them!
And I'm really happy, if Dan's loosing weight, it means that GB3 and maybe BB3 actually ARE going to be made.
