(NASHVILLE, Tenn.)--- March 7, 2013 – Former Tennessee Titan, now ESPNU Sports Analyst Kevin Carter will once again host his annual “Waiting for Wishes” Celebrity Waiter’s Dinner along with co-host Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts at The Palm Restaurant on Tuesday, April 2, 2013.  The event benefits The Kevin Carter Foundation and The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

One of Nashville’s premiere celebrity events, “Waiting for Wishes” has raised more than $1.4 million for charity since its inception in 2002.  The annual event sells out fast and this year is no exception, there are only a few tickets left.  This celebrity dinner is an exclusive, VIP evening where Carter and DeMarcus ask their friends that include NFL players, alumni and other professional athletes, country music artists and other various celebrities to take over The Palm as servers.   

Just a few of the celebrities scheduled for this year’s event are NFL Hall of Fame legend, Richard Dent, Vikings’ Jared Allen, Green Bay’s A.J. Hawk, Titans new safety George Wilson, country artists John Rich, Darius Rucker, Kix Brooks, Jana Kramer and Chip Esten who plays Deacon on ABC’s hit show NASHVILLE.  

The event, which is sponsored by HCA TriStar, Grand Avenue and Nashville Lifestyles Magazine continues to be one of the most unique celebrity events in the country and is considered one of the “must attend” events for patrons and participants alike.  This year they have added an official After Party, “Jam with Jay DeMarcus & Friends” at Honky Tonk Central for patrons and a few guests who are not able to attend the dinner.  

Carter, who played for the Titans from 2001 – 2004 is thankful that the Nashville community continues to support this event and an incredible cause that makes wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses.   

“I am so grateful to be able to continue this incredible event so many years after my tenure with the Titans,” said Carter.  “It’s been twelve years since I first had a vision about hosting a special dinner in Nashville to help children in need.  I had no idea that twelve years later the success that this event would be so significant.  I can only attribute that to this incredible community, their spirit of giving, and their commitment to changing the circumstances of those in need.  I am also very blessed to have a wonderful committee of volunteers who never get enough credit for the amazing work they do each year.  I couldn’t do it without their continued support in handling all the details of the event.”  

Tickets to the dinner are $500 per person with only a handful left.  Contact Paige Dixon at The Palm at 615-742-3193.   Tickets for the after party, Jam with Jay DeMarcus & Friends, are $85 and sold separately at
