Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) announced an artistic twist to its seventh annual Celebrity Server Luncheon to be held on Aug. 17 at Bonefish Grill, 4447 Commons Drive East in Destin.

Local business leaders are teaming up as art ambassadors by serving luncheon guests dressed in costumes representing the arts and entertainment industry (musicals, film, super heroes and music stars, among others).

Celebrity servers will be competing for the Best Team Costume and Top Celebrity Team Server going to the team raising the most funds through ticket sales and tips.

“Since 1995, Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation has been an advocate to fund outreach programs to more than 300,000 K-12 students in Okaloosa and Walton county schools,” said MKAF Education Director Melanie Moore. “Today, MKAF has expanded its outreach populations to serve the unique needs of our community through United Way agencies and a ‘Warrior Arts’ initiative for veterans with both visible and invisible injuries.”

There will be two seatings for lunch at 11:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Enjoy a buffet-style Bonefish Grill lunch served by the following local celebrities: Brian and Jessi Beauchamp (Beauchamp Commercial), Lisa Captain and Chris Kellogg (Coast 93.3 Morning Show), Caroline Majure and Ron Todd (Deja’ Vu Band), Dion and Mindy Moniz (Emerald Coast Title Services/Harrison Sale McCloy and Premier Property Group), Leslie Sullivan and Kim Moore (Century 21/Blue Marlin Realty) and Tracy and Alan Wood (NextHome Cornerstone Realty and CCB Community Bank).

Tickets are $20 each. Purchase tickets by calling the MKAF office at 850-650-2226 or directly from a celebrity server. For those unable to attend the luncheon, MKAF is accepting advance tips and donations, which can be pledged by calling the office.

All event proceeds will benefit MKAF’s community outreach programs to provide cultural experiences through quality music, theatre, and visual arts programs.

Since 1995, MKAF outreach has served those in more than 70 schools, United Way agencies and veteran and military organizations that are thoughtfully curated to serve the unique needs of these special populations.
