What is Celebrity Waiter?
The Celebrity Waiter Event (CW) is the one and only fundraiser for the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center. The event has been held since 2006, working to raise funds to help provide the services the BRCAC offers to the many child abuse victims and their families.
While the event is now held at L’Auberge to accommodate our increasing number of guests, it humbly began at Walk-On’s under the Les Miles coaching tenure. The first “celebrity waiters” were the LSU football coaches, and we have since been privileged to have been graced with over 100 local celebrities including LSU and SU coaches who come to compete for tips and bragging rights.
Some highlights of the evening include:
- The tip competition
- A huge silent auction with over 100 items (including autographed memorabilia, sports packages, jewelry)
- A live auction
CW is a chance to come and mingle with over 600 friends, fans and celebrities, and to be a part of this non-profit raising funds to help those greatly in need within East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Iberville and Pointe Coupee parishes.
What a success the 2019 Celebrity Waiter was! Thank you to all who contributed in so many different ways. Your hard work and dedication to our mission is so greatly appreciated. Can’t wait till next year!
