Merry Ann’s Diner will host the second annual Celebrity Server and Chef Fundraiser on June 1 and 2. One hundred percent of the fundraiser’s proceeds will go toward the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). Last year, the fundraiser raised over $6,000 thanks to the community’s support.

Celebrity Server and Chef Fundraiser Raises Over $6,000 for Summer Youth Employment Program

On May 19th and 20th, Merry Ann’s Diner hosted the Celebrity Server and Chef Fundraiser to benefit the Summer Youth Employment Program. During the event, about 40 local celebrities donated their time to work shifts at Merry Ann’s Diner. The celebrities served tables and cooked for about 500 patrons during the two-day event. Merry Ann’s Diner donated 100% of the proceeds from the event to SYEP. Thanks to the community’s support, over $6,000 was raised to benefit the Summer Youth Employment Program. The funds will assist SYEP in expanding to include more students.
