What is Celebrity Servers Night?

Co-chaired by Beth Coonan and Frank Vaia, Celebrity Servers Night is a fun night out with friends to celebrate and support the work of the YWRC.

Local celebrities from the Greater Des Moines community team up with professional servers to provide guests an incredible evening and delicious three-course dinner at either Centro or Django for just $45. Proceeds, including gratuities, support the mission of the YWRC to embrace and inspire young women to become strong, self-confident and successful.

What makes this event extra memorable, are the themes and costumes Celebrity Servers use to enhance their guests’ experience. In the past, this has included a Love Boat theme complete with leis for each guest, Can-can dancers, musical performances, on-the-spot portrait drawings, make up demonstrations and Celebrity Servers in full character.

How Do Tickets Work?

We’d love for you to join us! Each Celebrity Server will be assigned a specific seating time and restaurant. As a guest, you may either choose the Celebrity Server you would like to be seated with, or choose an ‘Open Ticket’ and be assigned a section by YWRC staff. If you choose an ‘Open Ticket’ and have a preference of seating time and/or restaurant, please include that information in the special notes section of registration.

The restaurant and seating time for each Server/Server team can be found in the ticket package description corresponding to their name(s). Tickets are listed in alphabetical order, according to the Server’s first name.
