OCCOQUAN, Va. - For many, it was a chance to be waited on hand and foot by a locally-elected official.
The Lake Ridge Rotary Club held their annual Celebrity Luncheon at Bistro L’Hermitage restaurant in Occoquan. Nearly 120 people came to the annual fundraiser and were served food and drinks by Prince William Occoquan Supervisor Mike May, Coles District Supervisor Marty Nohe, Delegate Richard Anderson, Occoquan Mayor Earnie Porta, and Chairman of the Potomac Health Foundation Marion Wall, and CASA Greater Prince William Executive Director Charlyn Hasson-Brown (she appeared as Dolly Parton we’re told).
Manassas Mayor Hal Parrish, and Potomac Nationals Mascot Uncle Slam also made an appearance.
“The Celebrity Luncheon serves as an annual fund-raising event to support the many causes of the Lake Ridge Rotary. Everything from hosting events for the Fellowship House, to providing scholarships to youth, supporting numerous local organizations,” said organizer Jason Hickman.
Bistro L’Hermitage is a classic French bistro on Occoquan Road, founded by Washington, D.C. restaurateur Youssef Eagle Essald.
