Morton’s The Steakhouse and Houston Texans All-Pro running back, Arian Foster, have teamed up to host a Celebrity Servers Charity Dinner on Monday, Sept. 28.
The proceeds will benefit The Arian Foster Family Foundation, whose mission is to empower upcoming generations to strive for healthier and more hopeful futures.
Foster and his Texans teammates will pass plates instead of footballs and don aprons instead of jerseys — all for a good cause. This is the ultimate event to see and be seen, drawing a host of superstar athletes that are at YOUR service.
Beginning at 6 PM, Houstonians can meet and mingle with their favorite Texans players during a VIP cocktail reception allowing fans to take pictures, and get autographs on footballs before they take on the kitchen.
Guests will enjoy watching these all-star athletes serve an exceptional four-course meal paired with fine wines from Morton’s The Steakhouse. Throughout the evening, fans will also have the opportunity to bid in exciting silent and live auctions to benefit The Arian Foster Family Foundation. Inspired by Foster’s personal experiences growing up, the Foundation supports families and youth in underserved neighborhoods improving access to healthy food, financial education, and opportunities for personal development.
“I look forward to serving the best football fans in the NFL,” said Foster. “This is a great way for our fans to get to know me and my teammates off the field while spreading awareness of my Foundation and its important cause.”
“We are honored Arian chose Morton’s to host this great event and look forward to seeing how these big-time football players handle the heat in the kitchen,” said Tim Whitlock, Sr. Vice President of Operations for Morton’s The Steakhouse.
Tickets start at $300 and allow access to the Celebrity Servers Dinner. To attend the VIP cocktail reception at 6 PM and the dinner, tickets cost $400 per guest.
