About Celebrity Waiters Luncheon
The Celebrity Waiters Luncheon was founded in 1985 by a dedicated group of Seattle business leaders with a passion for serving the community.
The goal of the event was to raise money and awareness for an important cause and to have fun doing it. This event, successful from the beginning, eventually became the largest luncheon auction of its type in the country.
Over the years, through the generous support of our table guests and sponsors, The Seattle Celebrity Waiters Luncheon has raised millions of dollars for charitable causes.
In 2013 we did it again! Packing as much mirth, merriment and frivolity as you are allowed to have into a 3-hour, Friday afternoon luncheon and auction and still managing to raise more than $425,000, a portion of which went to benefit the Millionair Club Charity.
The festivities and decorations are boundless at each and every Celebrity Waiter table and all the usual suspects are always there.
From Willy Wonka to Carl the Groundskeeper, Cleopatra to Indiana Jones, Animal House to Rick’s Cafe Americain.
You name them, you’ll find them
at The Seattle Celebrity Waiters Luncheon.
And the fun doesn’t stop at the decorations. The food is always fabulous. The drink, well let’s just say the drink is always more than adequate.
So all in all the Annual Seattle Celebrity Waiters Luncheon and Auction is a fantastic event never
to be missed with amazing
auction items, great food, drink
and guests and tremendous
effort by all our celebrity waiters
to raise a whopping amount for
the Millionair Club Charity.

For 92 years the Millionair Club
Charity has rebuilt lives by
restoring dignity and self-reliance
to unemployed men and women
in the greater Seattle area. We do
this by providing job opportunities,
hot meals, housing assistance,
showers, laundry services, vision
care, preventive medical care and
other essential support services.
Our programs reach thousands of people every year to help solve our region’s unemployment and homelessness challenges.
Every dollar raised at this luncheon
makes a direct, measurable impact
on the lives of the men and women
we serve in our community.
For these men and women, the sense

dignity that will come from feeling fully
self-reliant is immeasurable—and it
happens because of your support.
