For the 9th year in a row, Oklahoma celebrities will be serving up some fun and smiles while working for tips to support Upward Transitions’ programs that work to end generational poverty in Oklahoma City.

Upward Transitions will host its annual Celebrity Wait Night from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, August 23, at Hideaway Pizza located at 901 N. Broadway, Oklahoma City.

“We are excited to have local first responders from the OKC Police Department, OKC Fire Department, Oklahoma County Sheriff Department, and EMSA working as our celebrity waiters,” said Periann Pulliam, chief operations officer, Upward Transitions.  “Everyone has so much fun at this event, and we’re so thankful for the generous celebrities who donate their time to help prevent and end homelessness.”

In addition meeting some of the brave men and women serving our community, guests can purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a VIP Experience for Two at Oklahoma City Ballet. The prize includes two tickets for a performance of Alice in Wonderland, a backstage tour, and access to Broadway 10’s VIP Lounge with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres.

For over 92 years, Upward Transitions has touched the lives of Oklahomans working to prevent generational poverty through community collaboration, emergency relief and empowerment, therefore inspiring hope with our neighbors experiencing housing instability.  Upward Transitions offers a wide variety of programs, including retrieval of legal documents and state IDs, financial assistance with rent and utilities, and emergency travel for victims of domestic violence.  Upward Transitions also directs clients to resources that assist with life skills training and education to improve their employment potential. In addition to its services for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, Upward Transitions operates two information booths at Will Rogers World Airport to assist visitors to Oklahoma City. The information boots are staffed 365 days a year by Upward Transitions volunteers.
