Celebrity Waiter night is upon us!  (always the Monday after Mother's Day) This has been an Aiken event for many years - raising money for Children's Place.

May 10th-Come out for dinner and show your support for Children's Place!

Several area restaurants participate in this event - opening their doors on a Monday night (usually the one night of the week these hard-working restaurant folks are closed) for our local 'celebrities' to take over hosting, serving and entertaining the customers for more and more tips :)    All of the tips go to Children's Place.  A portion of the meal price goes to them as well.   It's amazing what they will do for tips :)   

 Last year this one event raised over $60,000 for Children's Place.  Thank You to our great community for supporting eachother :)   

I HEAR ALL THE FUN THIS YEAR WILL BE DOWNTOWN, IN THE ALLEY, AT TAKO SUSHI.   Their 'theme' this year is COWBOY UP FOR CHILDREN'S PLACE.    And what better a theme is there really - in this mainly equestrian community :)      Call Today & Reserve  Your Table at Tako Sushi:   803-295-2094!

Besides meals and a caring environment, the agency also provides speech, occupational, behavioral and play therapy tailored to each child's needs and parental and caregiver training and advice. Celebrity Waiter Night donations are used to support those therapeutic activities.

Kara.. I hope this is a huge success.  Any idea who the celebrities will be?  This might bring more people to the event.

always 'local' celebrities, Valerie.  The group at Takosushi is a group of local Realtors.   Other restaurants have different 'celebrities' --  local politicians, business owners....etc.  


They raised a ton of money last year - this is their biggest fundraiser :)
