The Dalton's held their Fourth Annual Celebrity Waiter Night to support the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation. The event was emceed by Dan Hoard and attended by many Bengals including Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, A.J. Green, A.J. Hawk, Domata Peko, Michael Johnson, Josh Johnson, Vinny Rey and Rey Maualuga, some of whom acted as the waiters for the evening. Waiters wore white gloves and aprons, a distinct change from the jerseys the players are used to wearing.
The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation provides opportunities, support and resources along with daily support and life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in Cincinnati and Fort Worth, according to the foundation's website.
The hope this year was to raise $300,000 for the foundation, according to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson:
"People can apply to receive a grant for medical expenses… We’re working through Children’s" Dalton said. "If they can’t afford a wheelchair, we can give them a wheelchair. Different things. Maybe insurance doesn’t cover a full payment and we can help in that way. It’s so tough on these families financially, we feel like we can make an impact."
The 300 guests at Monday night's event were able to bid via a silent auction on varying Bengals and Cincinnati memorabilia including a Reds jersey signed by Pete Rose. Below are some photos from the event:
