Senior Center celebrity waiters

The Senior Center’s third annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner was a huge success. Thanks to the fabulous and ever-debonair Jim Kerr, our master of ceremonies and ringleader of all of the antics – yes, law enforcement actually tried to auction off jewelry stolen from their guests. In fact, Police chiefs Lou Trovato and John Foster ran away with the coveted Celebrity Waiter Award for bringing in the most funds.

Several waiters increased their tips by forcing guests to pay to have the dusty plastic ficus tree hauled away. Mary Hillerman, the wife of our board president, was sold to the Telecare table. They wouldn’t return her. Curt Colagross, this year’s headwaiter, led a Joe Cain-style conga line of wait staff. All of this craziness and more contributed to making this the best fund-raiser ever for the Senior Center.

Special thanks also to Bill Holman and Bill Locker for their excellence at tending bar and to all the volunteers and donors who contributed to a successful evening.
