PORTLAND – The fourth annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner to benefit the Sexual Assault Crisis Center will be held at Martindale Country Club Friday, June 11, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Local celebrities will wait on tables, serve the food and provide entertainment.

This year’s waiters include Lionel Guay, mayor of Lewiston; his brother Norm Guay, mayor of Auburn; Phil Crowell, deputy chief of the Auburn Police Department; Phil Nadeau, Lewiston’s assistant city administrator; and Chip Morrison, president of the Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce.

Nelson Peters will be the master of ceremonies. Music will be provided by pianist Susan Glines. The celebrities will share their talents during the evening if enough tip money is raised to persuade them to perform.

Also included in the evening will be door prizes, a celebrity waiter apron auction and a silent auction.

Items for the silent auction include artwork, furniture, quilts, jewelry, bed and breakfast getaways, a golf package, gift certificates to local restaurants and retailers, tickets to the Sea Dogs and Maineiacs, and 100 gallons of heating oil.

The event is a fund-raiser for the Sexual Assault Crisis Center, which provides services to people who have been affected by sexual assault, sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
