16th Annual Celebrity Waiter Gala Presented by Nancy C. and Richard R. Rogers Benefiting the Child Abuse Prevention Center


The guests of the 16th Annual Celebrity Waiter Gala this Saturday, April 17 at the Hotel Palomar may have their wine glasses filled or their salads served by local celebrities such as Fashion Designer Abi Ferrin, Fashionista Rhonda Sargent Chambers, WFAA-TV’s Shay Geyer, Restaurateur Pat Snuffer, Restaurateur Jimmy Fell, Singer Janie Fricke or Uncle Julio’s Todd Conger. Presented by Nancy C. and Richard R. Rogers this event is always so much fun as the local celebrities entertain their table guests and try to get them to tip big as the waiters donate their tips back to the beneficiary, the Child Abuse Prevention Center.

Chairmen April and Sam Spicer and Celebrity Chairmen Diane and Daryl Johnston will mingle with their guests during the cocktail hour where the always popular and energetic DJ Lucy Wrubel will spin tunes. During this time, an array of fabulous silent auction items will be available for bidding.

After placing their bids, guests including Honorary Chairmen Sharon and Al Gonzales and Julie and Steve Rado will proceed into the ballroom for the seated dinner. Amidst the entertainment and being served by their celebrity host, posh patrons can bid on wonderful live auction items. An unlimited number can sponsor a child for $500 in the Fund the Need section of the live auction. In addition, George Ellis will be presented with the Spirit of Compassion award.

The evening will conclude with dancing and entertainment to Cuvee, one of my favorite local bands.

The Child Abuse Prevention Center’s mission is to break the cycle of child abuse by equipping parents and caregivers for success. They have four educational and counseling programs for families at risk for abuse. The Center works to empower its clients by teaching positive parenting methods and supporting parents in strengthening their families emotionally, economically and socially. The CAP Center is a key provider of prevention services for at-risk children and families in Dallas County.

Tickets are $250 each. Sponsorships available from $25,000 to $1,000. For more information or to attend the event, please contact Tiffani Oltmanns at toltmanns@excap.org or 214-370-9810.
