Dawson County 'celebrities' to serve up smiles
Family Connection breakfast Friday
Placeholder Image

The community will be seeing stars on Friday for Family Connection's Celebrity Waiter breakfast.

Close to a dozen "celebrity" waiters will be pouring coffee, cleaning up spills and clearing plates during the sixth annual breakfast at LongHorn Steakhouse.

The "celebrity" staff will include county commissioners, city council members and a variety of volunteers from numerous service organizations.

"I've always been here to support Family Connection," said Dawson County Board of Education member Doris Cook, who has been a waiter for the past three events. "This breakfast brings a good message about what Family Connection does for the community."

Part of a statewide initiative of community collaboratives, Family Connection brings community partners together to develop, implement and evaluate plans that address the serious challenges facing local children and families.

Last year, all profits went toward Family Connection's new focus on child sexual abuse prevention, Stewards of Children.

"The money raised here goes to the different programs that we head to help families succeed," said Nancy Stites, director of Family Connection. "We want people to be aware of Family Connection and the need to strengthen our families and children in our community. I think this is good way to sit and come together as a community."

The buffet breakfast is $10 per person and will be available from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. for dine in, carry out and delivery along the Ga. 400 corridor.

Tickets are available the morning of the event and at the Family Connection office at 189 Hwy. 53 West, Suite 105. Tickets can also be purchased from Family Connection board members.
