Evergreen’s Celebrity Waiter Dinner is a much-loved fundraiser in the greater North Louisiana area, and 2020 marks its 12th year as we come together virtually June 25, 2020. In a normal year, this event is hosted at a large venue where waiters compete against each other for tips. The waiters are community leaders and/or individuals who care about making a difference and supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their community. Each year has a theme, and each waiter decorates their table to match the theme. 2020’s theme is Around the World with Evergreen: A Passport to Better Lives. The irony of a traveling theme does not escape us.

Concerns for safety, as well as the ban on mass gatherings, have impacted all of our in-person fundraising events for 2020. But Evergreen still has a mission and we need your support more than ever before. Luckily, technology can bring us all together to support some of our most vulnerable community members.

▪ Virtual waiters and table hosts raising $500 or more in tips prior to or during the event will be entered for a chance to win a GoPro action camera!
▪ Pictures of your guests can be submitted and we will post them on our website.
▪ Participate in the best decorated or best-dressed theme for a chance to win a prize.
▪ Join us for a cocktail and mocktail demonstration and live entertainment before the event.
