Celebrity waiters, including Jamie Johnson of The Grascals, donned waiters jackets to serve diners, sign autographs and accept donations at the 11th annual Waiting for Wishes celebrity waiters dinner at The Palm Restaurant in Nashville.

Former Tennessee Titan Kevin Carter, along with Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, hosted the event.

Jamie Johnson took the stage with young cancer patient, Ansley McLaurin, to share a song with the crowd.

Celebrity participants included Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts, skating champion Scott Hamilton, singer Guy Penrod and NFL greats Eddie George, Craig Hentrich, Derrick Mason, Brad Hopkins and Eric Winston among many others.

Silent and live auctions offered plenty of opportunity for giving with proceeds benefitting The Kevin Carter Foundation and The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. More than $1 million has been raised over the past decade to support this vital charity.

Multi-award winners, The Grascals, recently made their 117th appearance on the stage of the legendary Grand Ole Opry followed by a sold out performance at the famed Cumberland Caverns for an installment of the very unique “Bluegrass Underground” series.
