May 6, 2013

LAKEWOOD, NJ - The 13th annual ALS Celebrity Waiter Event will take place at TGI Friday's in Brick on Wednesday, May 29th.

The annual event raises money for the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia, the principal charity of the Philadelphia Phillies, and has brought over $120,000 to the organization in the event's first 12 years.

BlueClaws players will serve as servers and hosts while coaches, including Lakewood manager and former Phillies second baseman Mickey Morandini, will serve as bartender helpers.

"Last year's event at TGI Friday's in Brick was a great success," said BlueClaws General Manager Brandon Marano. "We're excited to bring the event back to TGI Friday's and continue what was been a tremendous event for a great cause."

There will be two dinner seatings: 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm and 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm. Fans can reserve a table by calling TGI Friday's directly at 732-262-0937.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia, including 15% of every dinner bill (excluding alcohol) from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm and all tips from dinner bills during the same three hour period.

In addition, there will be a silent auction with a series of great items, from which all proceeds will be donated to the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia. Companies wishing to donate items for the gift auction can do so by contacting TGI Friday's of Brick at the number above.

BlueClaws Charities, the official non-profit foundation of the Lakewood BlueClaws, is a 501c3 organization that has donated over $500,000 in the last four years to area non-profit organizations and fundraising events.
