Date Announced for 2015 Waiting for Wishes Celebrity Waiters Dinner
Get ready for some big celebrities to serve up a little charity. The 2015 Waiting for Wishes dinner has announced the date for its 2015 event.
Co-hosted by Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus and former NFL defensive end Kevin Carter, Waiting for Wishes 2015 will be held on April 7, benefiting the Kevin Carter Foundation and the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
“I am so grateful to be able to continue this incredible event so many years after my NFL career,” Carter says. “I’m grateful to my co-host Jay DeMarcus and the unbelievable celebrities that show up to wait tables for our patrons each year. As we celebrate 14 years of making dreams come true for children, I am humbled to know that our efforts have granted about 340 wishes for children in middle Tennessee during that time.”
Since its inception in 2002, Waiting for Wishes has raised over $1.7 million for charity. After the dinner, the stars and ticketholders will head to Honky Tonk Central for an official event after-party.
Celebrity waiters for this year's event will be announced at a later date. Scotty McCreery, Dustin Lynch, Chris Young, Frankie Ballard and 'Nashville''s Chip Esten have all served as waiters in the past.
