The Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women to host 7th annual Celebrity Wait Night

The University of Toledo’s Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women will host its 7th Annual Celebrity Wait Night from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 12, at The Pinnacle, 1772 Indian Wood Circle in Maumee. More than 400 people are expected to attend this dinner featuring celebrity waiters from around the community and a silent auction.

Throughout the evening local celebrities will wait on the tables and collect tips to benefit the center. Some of this year’s servers include:

•  John Barrett, interim provost for UT
•  Jeff Cole, senior director of corporate communications for Dana Holding Corp. and UT Board of Trustees member
•  Dr. S. Amjad Hussain, professor emeritus in the UT College of Medicine and UT Board of Trustees member
•  Tricia Cullop, UT Women’s Basketball Coach

“The Eberly Center is one of the oldest women’s centers in the country and continues to not only serve UT, but the surrounding community,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, UT associate vice president of Equity, Diversity and Community Engagement, and director of the center. “The Eberly Center is an integral part of UT’s community engagement. The proceeds from this event will help continue to support the welcoming, inclusive environment that is the Eberly Center.”

All donations benefit the Eberly Center’s initiatives, including its signature programs the Women’s Success Series and Kate’s Closet. This program is designed to guide women on their journeys of personal and professional development, by engaging them to identify career paths, determine educational next-steps, navigate proactively in today’s economy, and prepare themselves for a successful future.
