Former Tennessee Titans player and NFL veteran Kevin Carter will host the 11th Annual Waiting For Wishes Celebrity Waiter’s Dinner to benefit the Kevin Carter Foundation and Make-A-Wish of Middle Tennessee at The Palm on Tuesday, May 8. Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus will co-host the event, which is approaching sell-out status.
Joining Carter and DeMarcus is an all-star celebrity lineup of athletes and celebrities including Sheryl Crow; Amy Grant; Joe Nichols; Rodney Atkins; Colt Ford; Kix Brooks, John Rich; Charles Kelley; Titans Marc Mariani, Rob Bironas, Steve Hutchinson, Michael Roos, and Will Witherspoon; former Titans Derrick Mason and Keith Bulluck; TV personalities Tim Couch, Hannah Storm, Randy Cross and Storme Warren; UFC fighter Chuck Lidell; Diamond Dallas Page of WWE and many others.
The unique and exclusive event features Carter and his celebrity pals taking over the Palm as servers. Sponsors include HCA/TriStar, Grand Avenue, The Downtown Hilton, and Nashville Lifestyles. Since it began over a decade ago, Waiting For Wishes has raised over $1.1 million for charity.
“I am so very grateful to be able to continue this event so many years after my tenure with the Titans,” says Carter. “It was 11 years ago when I had hoped to have a dinner that could raise some money for children with life threatening illnesses and the success that this event has grown into, can only be attributed to this incredible community, their spirit of giving, and their commitment to changing the circumstances of those in need.”
