Strive to Thrive servers bring out a crowd in Albany

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Service was provided with a smile on Monday as guest servers collected tips at a South Georgia restaurant to raise money for a group that helps pull families out of poverty.

Strive to Thrive held their celebrity waiter event at Sonny's Real Pit BBQ on North Slappey Boulevard.

Albany Tech president Dr. Anthony Parker and Mayor Dorothy Hubbard were among the diners who supported the event.

 “I thought we would have about 30 tables we probably had more like 50 to 55 tables tonight of people coming in that didn't know we were doing it and ended up saying well I want to support that and they can wait on me too,” said Cynthia George, Strive to Thrive co-founder.
    
The manager was proud of his crew who donated their tips as well. Strive to Thrive will be holding another celebrity waiter night at Longhorn's Steakhouse in August.
