State and local celebrities including the mayors of Benton, Bryant and Haskell, several radio and television[more] personalities and others will be serving as celebrity waiters at Larry’s Pizza on Tuesday, Aug. 2.
The event, which will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., is a fundraiser for the Relay for Life of Saline County and the American Cancer Society.
Donations and tips to the celebrities will go to raise funds to help Relay for Life of Saline County reach its goal of $7,000, which would put the event in the top 10 relays in the state, according to Amber DeMar, a spokesman for the organization.
Donations are also being accepted online at www.relayforlife.org/bryantar.
“If anyone knows of a celebrity who would like to donate some time and raise lots of money to benefit the American Cancer Society, they can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org,” said DeMar.
“There will be a plaque placed in Larry’s Pizza that will have the winning celebrity’s name on it for 2011,” she added, “along with the top fundraiser for 2010, Tom Farmer, a former coach and athletic director at Bryant High School.”
The Relay for Life of Saline County will be held May 11-12, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
