Plaquemines CARE Center’s Celebrity Waiters Compete to Be Super Star Waiter

The Plaquemines Community CARE Center held its first Celebrity Waiter Dinner on Thursday, October 20, 2016. Sissy Buras Stricklin, Event Chair, and her committee, worked with over twenty Celebrity Waiters who competed for the honor of Super Star Waiter of the night’s event. In the end, the Celebrity Waiter team of Eden Bubrig and Mitch Jurisich reigned supreme as the Super Star Waiter team of the night.

In addition to the competition among the Celebrity Waiters vying to earn the most “tips” to benefit the Plaquemines CARE Center, silent auction and live auction proceeds also benefitted the CARE Center. Thank you to all who contributed to the success of this event!
