The fun gets underway at Noon sharp when the Celebrity Waiters will greet you and guide you through this extra ordinary event. The Waiters will be competing as to whom will get the most “Tips”, all of which are donated to the Margaretville Health Foundation. If you usually tip 20% you might want to have more “Tip Bucks” available as they will pamper and entertain you for more. You can ask them to sing your favorite song, dance with you, play you a tune or tell a joke or two. Bring your imagination and make your Celebrity Waiter work for his “tip”.</p> <p>Can’t wait to join us? Reserve now. The luncheon is $60 not including tips. Can’t be there? Donate a tip and tell us which waiter should get it. More information?
