Celebrity Waiter Raises Over $100,000 For SCV Senior Center


On Saturday, the annual Celebrity Attendant fundraiser at the Santa Clarita Valley Bella Vida Senior Center raised $106,000 for seniors.

On Saturday, July 16, guests arrived at the SCV Senior Center in full costumes themed “Hollywood Nights.”

Bella Vida’s outdoor courtyard has been transformed into a Hollywood set, with the Hollywood sign adorning the hillside and tables decorated with different classic movie references.

“It was a great night for everyone,” said CEO Kevin McDonald. “Our goal with Celebrity Waiters was to honor our volunteers during COVID, so the real Celebrity Waiters that night were food service staff and drive-through volunteers.”

Each year the SCV Senior Center’s Signature Fundraiser features a theme and volunteers as a way to raise funds for the senior population and honor volunteers.

“We had 24 volunteers who got a round of applause and a standing ovation, and it was really an evening for me,” MacDonald said.

The event kicked off at 6 p.m. with guests including city council members and other local leaders walking the red carpet and participating in a cocktail reception before dinner.

Entertainment included performances by the Santa Clarita Masters Choir, with members singing classic Hollywood songs throughout the dinner.

After dinner came the auction, which went a long way to raising the needed funds for the SCV Senior Center.

“As a free-to-service nonprofit, we have to raise $1 million a year to break even, so this night was helpful for us,” MacDonald said.

Before the evening’s event, guests can purchase sponsorships and reserve tables for the night, many of which are local Santa Clarita businesses.

Sponsorship funds are used directly to support the elderly population.
