Celebrity Waiter Night raises $200,000-plus

The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation hosted nearly 300 guests at its fifth annual Celebrity Waiter Night. The June 6 event at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza raised more than $200,000 through ticket sales, silent and live auctions, and donations.

Proceeds will benefit the foundation’s community outreach programs, including the Pass It On Fund, which provides medical equipment and financial relief to families with seriously ill or physically challenged children.

Several of Cincinati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton’s teammates traded their jerseys for aprons to serve wine and hors d’oeuvres to guests. The waiters included Cedric Ogbuehi, Giovani Bernard, Kevin Zeitler, Andrew Whitworth, Keith Wenning, Brandon Tate, AJ Green, Clint Boling, Jake Fisher, Brandon LeFell, Rey Maualuga, Rex Burkhead and Eric Winston. Former Bengals kicker Jim Breech emceed the event.

Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour presented by Warm Realty + Development and State Farm Insurance; mingled with Dalton and his teammates; and enjoyed a three-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Todd Kelly of Orchids at Palm Court.
