The 31st Annual YMCA Celebrity Waiters Luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, at Almansor Court, 700 S. Almansor St., and will feature local community and business leaders who will serve lunch in costume to benefit YMCA West San Gabriel Valley Youth Programs.
The local celebrities will work for tips. Join the fun, and support the YMCA by purchasing tickets at the YMCA for $50 prior to the event.
“This Celebrity Waiters Luncheon will benefit youth programs; after school programs; and send a kid to camp, both residential and the Y’s day camp on site,” said YMCA CEO Valarie Gomez. “There will be great raffle prizes and auction items. Prominent members, such as Mayor Barbara Messina, who is president of the YMCA, are excited to be a part of the festivities by dressing up and becoming celebrity waiters to help benefit the youth programs we offer at the Y.”
