Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation's Celebrity Waiter Night Raises More Than $150,000
The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation’s fourth annual Celebrity Waiter Night played host to more than 300 guests at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hall of Mirrors on Monday, June 1. The Foundation raised more than $150,000 through ticket sales, silent and live auctions, and general donations.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Foundation’s community outreach programs and newly announced Pass It On Fund, which aims to provide medical equipment and financial relief to families with seriously ill or physically challenged children.
Founded in 2011, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation seeks to provide opportunities, support and resources, along with life-changing experiences, to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families.
“This year’s Celebrity Waiter Night is the largest event in the Foundation’s four-year history,” shares Andy Dalton. “Jordan and I are so thankful for all of the support from the Greater Cincinnati community. We’re truly blessed to have the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives.”

Hawk, Andrew Whitworth, Rey Maualuga, Domata Peko, Mohamed Sanu, Kevin Zeitler, Michael Johnson, Mike Nugent, Kevin Huber, Rex Burkhead, Cedric Peerman, Vincent Rey, Marvin Jones, C.J.
