Celebrity Waiter Luncheon

On behalf of STAR/PAL and the inner-city youth served by our organization, we would like to thank each and every one of you for making our 18th Annual “Superheroes for Youth” Celebrity Waiter Luncheon such a success! We had a wonderful time celebrating 18 years of this fun-filled event, including honoring Kristy Gregg with the Superhero for Youth Award, and recognizing Meb Keflezighi as our Honorary Chair.

Thanks to YOU we had another successful event grossing over $195,000 for STAR/PAL youth programs! A special thank you to our Presenting Sponsor CoreCivic, our wonderful event sponsors, table sponsors, in-kind donors, and to all of our guests for their generosity. Your contributions (and tips!) will go a long way in providing inner-city and at-risk youth with positive experiences and critical programming led by law enforcement officers!

Stay tuned for more details about the 2019 event!

Join us as local celebrities team-up with local law enforcement to help underserved youth by serving as “celebrity waiters” for this unique, fun-filled event! Athletes, law enforcement and public safety officials, local media personalities and more will pull out all the stops as they bring you lunch and other surprises in exchange for your “tips.”  We guarantee you’ll be entertained by the enthusiasm of our waiters as they work hard to earn your cash and raise funds, all to benefit STAR/PAL’s youth programs!

Every dollar raised through the annual Celebrity Waiter Luncheon helps STAR/PAL keep kids safe, in school, and away from crime & violence. STAR/PAL officers from the San Diego Police & County Probation Departments provide unique youth programming in underserved communities, empowering at-risk youth to build a safer and more prosperous community by engaging with law enforcement and other collaborative partners.  Be a SUPERHERO for Youth and support STAR/PAL!
