  A crowd of 130 and 15 celebrity waiters were in the spotlight at the first Celebrity Waiter Dinner, a Roaring ’20s-themed fundraiser May 12 at Sea Trail to benefit The Ruth House, a nonprofit, future Christian-based home and program for teenage girls.


Celebrity waiters served patrons tossed salad, rolls, prime rib, Dijon-crusted salmon and double-chocolate torte.

Also on the menu were silent and Chinese auctions and 50/50 tickets to help raise between $6,000-$7,000, according to event chairperson and Ruth House board member Barbara DeMore, for the future home on Buck Thorpe Road near Ocean Isle Beach.

Event sponsors were Douglas Diamond Jewelers, Calabash Photography Studio and table sponsors Carolyn Felton, Pat Purvis-Brown and Denise Mihal. Chad Adams of Big Talker Morning Show was master of ceremonies for the night.
