September 17, 2013
ATLANTA, GA (September 17, 2013) – At a press conference Tuesday, September 10, Atlanta Falcons Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon announced the launch of ticket sales for his First Annual Celebrity Waiter Night.
On Monday, Nov. 4 at 7:00 p.m., Ocean Prime in Buckhead will host Sean Weatherspoon and his teammates as Celebrity Waiters. For one evening only, Weatherspoon and teammates like Matt Ryan, Corey Peters, William Moore, Akeem Dent, Thomas DeCoud, Jason Snelling and more, will trade uniforms and helmets for aprons as they help serve guests four courses of the modern American supper club’s favorites and fine wine. Funds from the event will benefit Sean Weatherspoon’s SPOONful of Hope Foundation.
The mission of the SPOONful of Hope Foundation is to provide low income and inner-city youth in the greater Atlanta area with opportunities and resources to reach their full potential.
“It’s a fun change of pace for us,” said Weatherspoon. “Waiting tables is going to be way different than what we do on the field. It’ll be a lot of fun.”
In addition to the four-course meal, fine wines and service by celebrities, Weatherspoon’s Celebrity Waiter Night will feature an exciting live and silent auction to benefit the foundation.
Limited tickets are available at SeanWeatherspoon.org. General admission tickets are $250. VIP tickets, which include a signature series Falcons’ football for celebrity autographs and admission to a VIP pre-reception presented by Grey Goose at 6:30 p.m., are $350.
