DPIE's Celebrity Waiter Fundraiser

The evening includes a delicious dinner catered by local chefs, a no-host bar featuring local wines and beers, plus specialty cocktails, and dancing following the auctions and raffle drawings. Before the end of the evening our 2017 Most Appreciated Celebrity Waiter will be crowned. It's a fun filled night that raises funds for Public Education.

Dublin's Annual Event for Public Education

Each year DPIE reaches out to all the schools across the Dublin Unified School District (DUSD), to ask how we can best support and invest in the educational experience for their students. A list of programs is compiled and we get to work raising the money to fund these needs. We do this by bringing together the community and local businesses, to help ensure the success of our Celebrity Waiter Dinner and Auction, which is our largest fundraiser of the year.

The Celebrity Waiter Dinner and Auction brings together a select group of local business leaders and key community members to raise much needed funds for all the students within Dublin. The event offers a night of entertainment, dancing, silly antics, and most importantly FUNdraising.

Celebrity Waiters Compete for Tips & Raise Funds

Our Celebrity Waiters act more as hosts for the event and are seated and dine with their guests. They invite nine generous members of the community who have a passion for supporting public education to join their table. Throughout the evening, the Celebrity Waiters will compete for the title of “Most Appreciated Celebrity Waiter” by earning tips, selling raffle tickets and encouraging their guest to purchase silent and live auction items. Each Celebrity Waiter sets a theme to their table and invites their guests to dress accordingly. Previous year’s themes have included; Harlem Globetrotters, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, San Francisco Giants, to name a few.
