Celebrity Serve 2016 participantsCelebrity Serve

Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Siné Irish Pub and Restaurant, Shockoe Slip

The Celebrity Serve is a fundraising event for CARITAS where local “celebrities” volunteer their time to act as wait-staff for 150 invited guests. It incorporates a brief awareness component and a live auction. Unique to Richmond and commemorating an amazing sixteenth year, it offers guests a chance to interact with Virginia celebrities; enjoy a chef-prepared dinner and spend the evening in a laughter-filled environment all in the spirit of supporting a great cause. Your attendance and sponsorship will ensure the longevity of our family of programs: CARITAS Shelter, Furniture Bank, Works and The Healing Place. We hope you join us as we host our final celebration and begin anew in 2020. If you would like additional information, please feel free to contact Committee Chair Sharon Hord at 804-337-3030 or
