Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 21 for the Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce's Celebrity Waiter Dinner.

It begins at 6 p.m. with cocktails with dinner following at 7 p.m. and at 8:30 p.m., there will music and dancing.

Dinner tickets are $40 per person and the Chamber would like for visitors to RSVP by July 18 to the Chamber office at 25 Homestead Rd., or by calling the office at 239-369-3322.

According to Gary Bright, the Chamber's CEO, diners will be served by local celebrities and politicians from Lehigh Acres and Lee County.

"Take advantage of paying your waiter to do almost everything for you. Bring enough dollar bills. You will need them," he said.
