Dallas Burn and Buca di Beppo team up for second celebrity waiter night

DALLAS - The Dallas Burn and Buca di Beppo restaurant in Frisco have once again teamed up for Dallas Burn Celebrity Waiter Night on Thursday, October 7 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. At the event, Dallas Burn players will serve as celebrity waiters at the Frisco Buca di Beppo located at 8580 Hwy. 121 in Frisco.

All tips received by the Burn players during their shift will be donated to the North Texas Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In 2003, the Dallas Burn players raised over $1,000 and this year they hope to double this contribution.

"The Dallas Burn is excited and honored to participate once again in Celebrity Waiter Night at Buca di Beppo," said Burn President and General Manager Greg Elliott. "The Burn players, as well as the entire organization, are dedicated to giving back to the community and this is certainly a great cause."
