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.
