For the 38th year in a row, the San Diego City Fire Fighters graciously donated their financial support as “Title Sponsor” to the always wild and crazy “Fire Fighters and Friends” Celebrity Waiters Luncheon. Held on a sunny late-September day (a much-needed rain shower held off until everyone left), patrons were treated to great food, local and Hollywood stars and the high energy of San Diego City Fire Fighters bayside at the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa.
KUSI-TV News anchor Hunter Sowards and comic and TV personality Russ T. Nailz co-hosted the event and kept the festivities going at a lively pace. Tips were given freely and with special live auctions, over $55,000 was raised for the cause.
UCP would like to thank our local media partners KUSI News, Cox Communications and the San Diego Community Newspaper Group for their promotional efforts. We salute our Hollywood and local celebrities that included such personalities as actor Christopher Knight of the Brady Bunch, actor Peter Kwong, actress Blanca Blanco who starred in the feature film Dark Reel, Larry Wilcox of CHiPs, actor John Savage, Fox 5's Troy Hirsch, KUSI News' Teresa Sardina plus Bono, Tom Cruise & Jack Nicholson look-a-likes and many more.
UCP also thanks the staff of the Coronado Marriott Resort & Spa for their assistance and cooperation and the following organizations, companies and individuals for their support: Berkshire Hathaway HC, Misty Thompson & Melody Morgan, dpc productions, San Diego Gulls, San Diego Seals National Lacrosse team and the San Diego Enforcers.
