BRICK – The BlueClaws are pleased to hold their 17th annual ALS Celebrity Waiter Event on May 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Quaker Steak & Lube, 1036 Cedar Bridge Ave.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia, the principal charity of the Phillies.

  The ALS Celebrity Waiter Event features BlueClaws players serving as the waiters and BlueClaws coaches serving as the bartenders. The players will pose for pictures and sign autographs throughout the night, while helping to raise money for a great cause.

20 percent of all bills and 100 percent of all tips will be donated directly to the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia. This event has raised over $150,000 for the ALS Association in its first 16 years of existence.

“We are very excited to bring the ALS Celebrity Waiter Event to Quaker Steak & Lube for the first time,” said Jim DeAngelis, Executive Director of BlueClaws Charities and the BlueClaws Director of Community Relations. “This has been our top community event over the last 16 years and we feel it will be even better this year! We’re looking forward to another special event.”

Reservations must be made in advance. To reserve a table, call Quaker Steak & Lube directly at 732-255-5823.

There will also be a 50/50 and a silent auction, with merchandise from both the BlueClaws and Phillies available, again with all proceeds going directly to the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia.

BlueClaws Charities is the official non-profit organization of the Lakewood BlueClaws and supports over 40 Community Partner organizations and hundreds of non-profit organizations and fundraising events each year.
