The Invite

The 2nd Annual Celebrity Waiter Night at STK hosted by Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla

The Venue

The Highlights

The sold-out event allowed 150 guests to get up close and personal with 10 Atlanta Braves players/erstwhile waiters and bartenders, while enjoying STK’s signature cuisine in four decadent courses. The evening kicked off with a cocktail hour in the lounge and bidding on silent auction items from signed jerseys to concert tickets.  An energetic live auction, which raised more than $50,000,  took place after dinner and one lucky bidder even landed a dinner with Dan. Among the handsome Braves players on hand to help Dan out: Freddie Freeman, Martin Prado, Mike Minor, Michael Bjorn, Eric Hinske, Jair Jurrjens, Kris Medlen, Tyler Pastronicky and former Braves player Charlie Leibrandt.

The Cause

The evening benefitted Dan Uggla’s Diamonds in the Rough Foudnation, which provides opportunities, support and resources to children and families in need, with a special focus on low-income families and children with cancer. For more information visit www.danuggla.org
