The written word will go head-to head with radio waves on Tuesday, March 19, at a Celebrity Server event featuring Roger Robertson of KBCH radio and Patrick Alexander of Oregon Coast TODAY.

The pair will square off at Chinook’s Seafood Grill to raise money for Family Promise of Lincoln County, a local program to help families experiencing homelessness.

The contenders are office mates in their new space at 4741 SW Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City and are out to prove who is “best in the office.”

The fun event will feature the two celebrities serving meals ordered from a special menu with “extra” tips for “extra” service going to Family Promise. Each celebrity server must earn the extra tips from guests by providing excellent service and fun entertainment. Whoever raises the most donations gets bragging rights.

“We ask those attending to dip in a little bit and tip the celebrity servers extra if they entertain you during the dinner service,” said Sue Anderson, board president of Family Promise. “It should be pretty interesting as these two are really up for the challenge.”

Family Promise of Lincoln County is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide shelter, meals and comprehensive assistance to homeless and low-income families with children in Lincoln County while they seek to achieve sustainable, independent living. This is achieved through a collaborative community effort and based on a national model that partners with local congregations and social service agencies to provide practical and effective services.

Family Promise serves families in Lincoln County and encourages families from Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Newport and other areas of the county to join in the fun. For more information call Family Promise at 541-614-0964.

The Celebrity Server event will start at 5:30 pm at Chinook’s Seafood Grill, 1501 NW 40th Place.
