Celebrity Wait Night puts the spotlight on Toledo’s medical community

TOLEDO, Ohio – And they’re off… The Victory Center’s Celebrity Wait Night: Run for the Roses is a Kentucky Derby theme party aimed at helping the local cancer community. Presented by the Toledo Clinic, Celebrity Wait Night features nearly 400 guests in Kentucky Derby attire enjoying raffles, games, a photo booth by Kurt Nielsen, and fantastic food at The Premier on Heatherdowns.


This year’s event features ‘Most Dapper’ and ‘Most Facinate-ing’ contests for the best-dressed man and woman in attendance along with simulated horse racing and prizes for the luckiest jockey. A reverse raffle will send one lucky winner home with a Tundra Yeti Cooler filled with spirits, valued at over $750!


In attendance will be a large portion of the local cancer community, oncologists, nurse navigators, and specialists from all of the region’s top medical facilities. The event is hosted by The Victory Center’s Medical Advisory Council and is geared towards raising a glass to our successes while working toward reaching future goals. Other guests in attendance are local business owners, cancer survivors, philanthropists and volunteers, TVC Board members, and finance/wealth mangers.


At the conclusion of the evening, Celebrity Waiters will pass around an envelope and ask for ‘tips’ from their guests in exchange for their five-star service! This money allows us to continue to help newly-diagnosed cancer patients with more services; The Victory Center hopes to raise $65,000. TVC is able to host a full year of support group meetings for just $1,000. Six family or individual counselling sessions can be offered for just a $250 donation and for $300, we’re able to offer 11 Reflexology treatments.
