To the editor,

The 9th Annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner to benefit Franklin Opera House was a great success. Well over 100 people attended the catered event, held at Mojalaki Country Club in Franklin and were treated to great food and wine, entertainment, a silent auction and a live auction as well.

Celebrity waiters included Franklin Mayor Ken Merrifield, former Mayor Tony Giunta, Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier, radio personality Heather Bishop, State Representative Leigh Webb, who also served as auctioneer, and State Senator Andrew Hosmer, whose firm, AutoServ of Tilton sponsored the event, as well as others too numerous to mention.

Our sincere thanks to the good folks at AutoServ. Without the generous support of local businesses such as AutoServ the Opera House could not succeed.

All of the proceeds from the evening go to support the ongoing mission of Franklin Opera House, which is to provide the finest live entertainment in the Lakes Region.

The Franklin Opera House is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization located in the City Hall building in downtown Franklin. The web address is:
