Presentation of Head Celebrity Waiter Award
The Blue Plate Special is served by a distinguished group of community leaders who have volunteered to be Celebrity Waiters. Each Celebrity Waiter hosts their guests for a memorable “Diner Era” meal created especially by Bob Hurley of the beloved Hurley’s restaurant in Yountville.
While there is no charge to attend the event, your role will be to reward your Celebrity Waiter with “tips”, making it possible for them to win the coveted “Head Celebrity Waiter” Award. The Celebrity Waiters have each devised their own inventive schemes to garner your attention and tips.
Tipping the Celebrity Waiters is optional, but HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, as all tips and auction proceeds will benefit Cope Family Center, providing Napa Valley families with the education, resources and support they need to raise children who thrive. All contributions, including Celebrity Waiter tips, are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
