United Way Celebrity Roast
Last year marked the grand finale of the Maxine DeHart Ramada Hotel Drive-Thru. To honour Maxine, her sponsors, and volunteers, Interior Savings is presenting the United Way Celebrity Roast in 2019 featuring none other than Maxine DeHart. This event will follow a similar format as celebrity or comedy roasts (think Dean Martin or Comedy Central but clean and classy!). Local media personalities, celebrities, community leaders, philanthropists and comedians with searing (but clean) one-liners will “roast” Maxine DeHart, all to support United Way and help raise funds for the most vulnerable people in our communities.
The event will be held at Willowstone Academy on Lakeshore Drive. This beautiful event space will be dressed for the evening and is, of course, on Max’s local patch.
A delicious standing dinner and drinks will be served with a local jazz trio entertaining us for the "Max Mixer" before the Roast begins. Semi-Formal Attire for the evening is suggested.
Every year, Maxine DeHart donates $1000 to United Way. She is throwing out a challenge to all her supporters...Match me if you can!
