Positive Foundation gets $1,750 from waitressing event

POSTED: 11/14/11 3:50 AM

GREAT BAY – Hard Rock Cafe St. Maarten has donated $1, 750 dollars to the Positive Foundation following a celebrity waitressing event it had at the end of October to raise awareness of breast cancer. The contribution is the $900 the five celebrity waitresses made in tips and the additional $850 is a combination of 15 percent of the sales at dinner that night and raffle tickets for prizes like stays at The Cliff and smart phones.

The five celebrity waitresses were Attorney Brenda Brooks, PJD2 Radio Personality Grace “Lady Grace” Blijden, Former Miss St. Maarten Angelique Martes-Romou, Journalist Alita Singh and Radio Personality Mercedes “Elektra” Wyatt. Brooks, who did a stint as waitress during her studies in the Netherlands, collected the most tips. Each waitress was dressed in pink aprons and carried pink pens with a breast cancer ribbon that lit up and was “kept on their toes” by family and friends who demanded faster service or made “impossible” orders for fun.

Positive Foundation President Shelly Alphonso is “thankful for the commitment of so many people to the waitressing event” and applauded the waitresses. The event organizer Riselle Celestina of Glitter Party Planners thanked Gary “GeeMoney” Euton for donating his time as master of ceremonies.

She also said, “Event was well attended. All tables were full and waitresses worked their butts off.”

The main sponsors for the evening were Hard Rock Cafe and B and C Beverage (Corona and Tequila Rose). Other sponsors were Island 92, PJD2, Laser 101, Alo, Gojilania, Renttasound, Sound 2000 and Shop 4 Less. Raffle prizes were donated by Miguel Salon and Spa, Porto Cupecoy, The Cliff, Sonesta Great Bay Resort and Casino, and MAC among others. Diners were entertained by Ralph and the Rivers Brothers, and Mosaic
