Lake Ridge Rotary Plans Celebrity Luncheon Fundraiser at Bistro L’Hermitage
– March 28, 2014 10:17 am
The Rotary Club of Lake Ridge Virginia will be hosting its 17th annual Celebrity Luncheon on April 23rd at Bistro L’Hermitage in Occoquan to raise money for local and international charities.
The popular fundraiser features local elected officials and community leaders as waiters and waitresses, with a catch. “While everyone can enjoy a delicious lunch from our favorite upscale restaurant, they may find they are missing silverware, napkins and water, “ explained Lance Frye, Lake Ridge Rotary’s President-elect, who is heading up the event. “In order to receive their glass of water, for example, our guests will be expected to tip the celebrities. So once you give your celebrity server a buck, you get your water. It is a fun way to raise money in addition to the ticket price.
The event returns to the five star rated classic French bistro for the third year in a row with celebrities that will include mayors, county supervisors, state delegates and other public officials from local towns, Prince William County and the state of Virginia.
In addition to gourmet food and a festive, fun atmosphere, guests can also participate in the 50/50 cash prize drawing and also win prizes in the raffle.
Tickets are $60 and sponsorships starting at $600 are still available by contacting Warren Aldrich at 571-436-3612 or Lance Frye at 703-929-5595.
