GLAAACC Education Fund Celebrity Waiter and Waitress Luncheon
GLAAAC Education Fund and Foundation hosted their first annual Celebrity Waiter and Waitress Luncheon at the California Science Center. The objective of the luncheon is to create a unique and innovative lunchtime auction comprised with key business and community leaders. Guests are invited to sit at their table and are waited on by their Celebrity Waiter host. The waiter encourages their table guests to bid on auction items and “tip” their waiter throughout this fun-filled, themed event. All proceeds are raised for the organizations’ scholarship recipients.
