Donate Life Florida is a nonproļ¬t organization dedicated to motivating Floridians to register as organ, tissue and eye donors so lives can be saved through donation and transplantation. The organization designates April as Donate Life Month.
The lunch will begin at 11 a.m. at Chuck’s Seafood Restaurant, located at 822 Seaway Drive in Fort Pierce, Fla. Tickets are $50 each, including lunch and dessert.
The twist is: Local celebrities will be serving the guests. Conļ¬rmed celebrity servers include St. Lucie County School Board members Debbie Hawley and Dr. Donna Mills; St. Lucie County Tax Collector Chris Craft; St. Lucie County Property Appraiser Michelle Franklin; St. Lucie County Fire Chief Buddy Emerson; St. Lucie Public Schools Chief Communications Officer Kerry Padrick; St. Lucie County Commissioner Frannie Hutchinson; and Fort Pierce Commissioner Jeremiah Johnson.
