Event description

Description

This is no ordinary luncheon!

This is the only luncheon where the waiter may actually hide your silverware and ask you to “buy” it back!

This is the only luncheon where you can pay waiters to get on stage and sing any song you can think of--whether or not they know the words, and whether or not they can actually sing.

That’s because it’s the guests who are the real power brokers at this event. They can turn the tables on their entrepreneurial waiter by asking him or her to get on stage and perform in exchange for a tip. “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” tends to be a crowd-pleaser, but it’s really anything goes after a while.

Of course all the tip money is happily passed on to Cornerstone Services.

Each year Cornerstone welcomes about 30 Star Waiters and over 300 guests to the annual fundraiser. Guests are treated to a fabulous lunch, while their waiters serve champagne and take turns being called to the stage to perform. Things can get a little crazy, but with a show-stopping whistle, the emcees keep the event moving at a brisk pace. Performances only last a few seconds and a new waiter is called to the stage.

Guests can also go home with some great auction items like event tickets as well as one of the fabulous centerpieces that are sold by raffle.

The Champagne Luncheon is a very silly event, but also a very important one. Each year it raises thousands of much-needed dollars for Cornerstone Services. The not-for-profit agency helps people with disabilities to live and work in the community as independently as possible.

Buy your tickets early and receive a discount! Tickets are $50 each and tables are $500. The price will increase to $60 a ticket and $600 a table on Oct. 1, 2018. (Prices do not include additional processing fees.)


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Well, it is the Champagne Luncheon. Neither the beverages nor the fancy food are really geared toward children. For that reason, we are asking that guests be over 21 years of age. However, if you have a special circumstance, please call us and we will see what we can do.

What should I bring to the event?

Cash. Bring lots of cash for tip cards and raffle tickets. We also accept credit cards. Bring a sense of humor, too. You will be doing a lot of laughing during these brisk two hours.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Call us at 815-741-6743 with any questions or changes to your reservation.
