The Celebrity Breakfast is held in the fall and brings nationally known speakers to Bridgeport for a fundraising breakfast that benefits the various programs offered at the Center. Local business leaders, educators, and politicians serve as "Celebrity Waiters" and purchase a table of ten for their friends and/or colleagues. The waiters serve breakfast to their guests and each guest leaves a "tip" that is a donation to the Cardinal Shehan Center. Past Celebrity speakers include Mike Lupica, Gail Goodrich, Frank Gifford, Jack Welch, Jim Nantz, Rod Thorn, Tiki Barber, Dan Hicks, and Brian Cashman.
Our 24rd Annual Celebrity Breakfast was a huge success raising close to $70,000 to benefit the Center’s programs!! On October 18th Antonio Pierce, current ESPN American Football Analyst and former NY Giant and Washingon Redskins player, guest-starred as the celebrity speaker. Pierce shared his experiences as an NFL player and Super Bowl Champion, as well as his belief in the important role the Center and our mission can play in shaping the future of our youth and community.
Thank you to our sponsor, Webster Bank, and all those who attended for making this year's Breakfast a success!
The 2012 Celebrity Breakfast date is to be determined. For more information, please call Lorraine or Alyson at (203) 336-4468.
Companies can purchase a table of ten for $1,200. Co-sponsorship of this event is available for $5,000. Sponsors are mentioned in the program and also printed on the tip cards, which are distributed to over 450 guests. Sponsors also have the option to display their company banner and distribute promotional material.
