Celebrity Serve 2010 Serves Up FUN and Funds for Watauga Education Foundation! (GIVEAWAY)

Celebrity Serve 2010 is a Community Fundraiser for local charities. This year Watauga Education Celebrity Serve 2010Foundation is the beneficiary.  Each Year, the WEF raises and donates thousands of dollars to the school system in Watauga County!  When I was a teacher, I received a generous grant from the WEF for my music classroom, and so has my husband.  They are huge supporters of the arts in our schools, as well!

Celebrity Serve will be held on Tuesday, April 20, and I’ll be at Glidewell’s in Blowing Rock for dinner!

Each restaurant will donate at least 10% of all sales plus their servers will donate 100% of all tips to WEF. Come out to one or all of the following restaurants on Tuesday April 20 to be served by local celebrities. You may even see a big celebrity such as ASU Head Football Coach Jerry Moore and ASU Head Basketball Coach Buzz Peterson.

… And me… I wouldn’t really call myself a celebrity, just a mom with a big mouth.  But nevertheless, I’m excited to be serving at Glidewell’s (y’all know that’s one of my favorite restaurants!)  I would LOVE it if you would come out and heckle me! I’ve heard through the grapevine that Patrick Sukow (principal of Blowing Rock School) and Cullie Tarleton (NC Congressman) will be at Glidewell’s too!

Be sure and purchase a raffle ticket for your chance to win $3,000! Your own personal stimulus package! The WEF will use the money to fund Global Learning Technology at WCS and to bring Dolly Parton’s literacy initiative Imagination Library to Watauga County. Many of this year’s Celebrities are the teachers and principals from WCS schools. Make your dining dollars work harder and support the Watauga Education Foundation’s mission to help
each child reach their highest potential! Find out where your teacher is serving by visiting www.wefnc.org

To Celebrate Celebrity Serve 2010, I am giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to Glidewell’s so you can come! I know lots of us are struggling financially, but if you only eat out once a month, this is the day to do it! You can use it any time, but only on April 20th, will all the tips and 10% of profits be donated to the Watauga Education Foundation.  So I’m hoping you’ll grab lots of friends and come on over!

Let Me Serve You, and Give to the Hospitality House

Two-dozen High Country eateries serve up food, fun and charity for Celebrity Serve 2009. Come let me serve you at Glidewell’s in Blowing Rock!

The annual Boone Celebrity Serve, which raised more than $50,000 last year, will benefit the Hospitality House’s Giving Hope a Hand Combined Campaign for building and operating a new homeless shelter for the High Country. They are the onlcelebrity_serve-featurey such shelter in a seven-county area.

The Celebrity Serve will be Tuesday, April 7, starting at 5:30.

In these tough times, it’s more important than ever that we pull together and help those in need.  And you can do that while having a really fun night out!  Glidewell’s has a relaxed atmosphere, while serving up delicious, chef created dishes.  We had the Mom Squad 1 year Birthday Party there and had a terrific time!  Click here to see pictures of the party!

I am really nervous, because the only waitress experience I’ve had was for a few months in college at the Dan’l Boone Inn!  I hope I don’t spill a drink on someone!  Will you come keep me company?

If you RSVP here, I’ll bring something to help entertain your kids while you wait for your food!
