? Those looking for a fun-filled evening are encouraged to attend the 2008 celebrity dinner and silent auction being planned for Thursday, October 16, by the United Way of Scott County.
The third annual event will coincide with National Boss Day and will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Jeeves and Company in downtown Scottsburg. Cost is $20 per person.
Last year’s celebrity servers helped raise over $3,000 to benefit United Way of Scott County, which supports 16 local health and human service agencies and programs.
Celebrity servers this year include Austin Mayor Doug Campbell; Tim Edwards, assistant general manager of Wal-Mart Distribution Center and a board member of United Way; Jan Hardy, Scottsburg Clerk-Treasurer; Clifford Nay, Scott Memorial Hospital President/CEO; Syd Whitlock, president of The Scott County State Bank; Tammy Young, purchasing coordinator for American Steel Cord/Hyosung and United Way board president.
The United Way Campaign Committee is still seeking celebrity servers for the event and items for the silent auction, which will be conducted throughout the evening. Several interesting items have already been donated.
Servers are encouraged to have a theme for the tables in their areas. They will work for tips, which could mean singing, dancing or performing other creative ways to earn money. Because the event coincides with National Boss Day, persons attending are encouraged to bring their bosses. Awards will be given for best server, most fun and best use of theme.
The evening’s menu includes bourbon pecan chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, sugar snap peas, carrots and dessert.
