Celebrity Waiters Dinner
Held at the New Orleans Airport Hilton in Kenner, the Celebrity Waiters Dinner 2016 was an elegant red carpet event. Cocktails began at 6:30pm with the Raider Jazz Band providing the entertainment. Local and Raider community celebrities assembled 10 person tables to host the tip competition. Silent auction items, raffles, and a live auction highlighted the event. The long awaited Raider Car Raffle was drawn by donating foundation members Mr. Ray Brandt and Ms. Jessica Brandt. The 2016 Toyota Camry was won by a Raider Grandparent, Ms. Elizabeth Bauman, and the ticket salesman was Raider Alex Locantro. In the end, reigning champion Mr. Ashton Ryan, president of First NBC and past Raider parent, won the tip competition with a $50,000 donation to the school. All money raised will go to benefit the students of Archbishop Rummel High School.
