Johnson and teammates to don aprons for Defend the Dream Foundation

LENEXA, KANSAS – Kansas City Chiefs’ Pro Bowl Linebacker Derrick Johnson will host his Second Annual Celebrity Waiter Night on June 9 at Grand Street Café in Lenexa. The event, presented by Glazer’s of Kansas, will feature Johnson and about 15 of his teammates as they trade their helmets and shoulder pads for aprons to help serve 200 guests a three-course dinner.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Johnson’s Defend the Dream Foundation and its mission to provide low-income children in Kansas City with educational resources and opportunities to succeed.

“I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to give back to this community,” said Johnson. “This is my home and I want to be able to help where I can. I think you’ll find a lot of my teammates feel the same way."

Last year, Johnson brought nearly half the team with him to Celebrity Waiter Night including players like: Tamba Hali, Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith and Kendall Gammon. He expects they will return in force for year two.

VIP tickets to Celebrity Waiter Night are $350 and include access to a VIP cocktail reception with celebrities, an autograph series Kansas City Chiefs football, three courses of exceptional food and wine at Grand Street Café and service by celebrities. General admission tickets, which do not provide exclusive time with the celebrities or a signature series football, are $250.  A live and silent auction will also be part of the evening’s festivities.

Sponsorship packages are available upon request. To purchase tickets, visit DerrickJohnson56.org.
