Media personalities and some law enforcement will trade in their work uniforms for serving trays Wednesday, and it's all for a good cause.
Local media personalities, including Channel 2's Adam Varahachaikol, troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol, and members of the Nevada Air National Guard will team up and volunteer their time as celebrity waiters and waitresses Wednesday night at Claim Jumper Restaurant from 5pm-9pm.
Each volunteer will be paired up with a restaurant employee and will work for additional tips for the local animal shelter. These extra tips are in addition to the normal server's entitled gratuity.
"This is truly a great event with a high spirit of team effort from our Nevada Air National Guard members, media personalities and NHP troopers to raise money, awareness, and to also collect pet food for the many, many displaced pets residing at Nevada Humane Society," said Chuck Allen, NHP Trooper and board member for Nevada Humane Society.
All of the money raised during the four-hour event will be donated directly to the Nevada Humane Society to cover spay, neuter, and medical costs for the hundreds of displaced pets from our community residing at the shelter.
There will also be a pet food drive that evening in the restaurant parking's lot as well as adoptable dogs and cats to see - at 4905 South Virginia Street.
