Where Northwest Louisiana Scouting Lives


Come to the first Celebrity Waiter fundraising event benefiting the Norwela Council’s Boy Scouts of America organization. Local “celebrities” and business leaders will come together for a night of fundraising festivities in which guests can tip their waiter based on their fun service.

Tables will have nothing on them except a tablecloth and guests will playfully ask for their utensils, napkins, condiments, entertainment. etc. from their waiters who hope to earn their “tips” (or as we call it, donations!) throughout the night. Plated meals will be served by the Sam’s Town wait staff and local Chef Blake Jackson will be helping create the menu for this semi-formal event.

Join us as we honor the Kinsey family for their 30 plus years of service and dedication to the Norwela Council, Boy Scouts of America.

The dinner will feature campfire-inspired cuisine designed by local chef Blake Jackson and will feature a popcorn and wine pairing tasting station.

Some of our Celebrity Waiters include:

Sonja Bailes, Tari Bradford, Mike Busada, Mario and Meghan Chavez, Michael Corbin, Andrew Crawford, Dianne Clark, Jerry Edwards, Roy Griggs, Grant Nuckolls, Bobby Matthews, Camille McCall, , Shreveport Fire Chief Clarence Reese, Paul Savage, Trey and Sarah Giglio, and many more!
