Nashville, TN — Former Tennessee Titan Kevin Carter, along with Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, hosted the 11th annual Waiting for Wishes celebrity waiters dinner at The Palm Restaurant in Nashville. Celebrity waiters, including Jamie Johnson of The Grascals, donned waiters jackets to serve diners, sign autographs and accept donations.

Celebrity participants included Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts, skating champion Scott Hamilton, singer Guy Penrod and NFL greats Eddie George, Craig Hentrich, Derrick Mason, Brad Hopkins and Eric Winston among many others. Silent and live auctions offered plenty of opportunity for giving with proceeds benefitting The Kevin Carter Foundation and The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. More than $1 million has been raised over the past decade to support this vital charity.
