Celebrity Breakfast

The Celebrity Breakfast is held in the fall and brings nationally known speakers to Bridgeport for a fundraising breakfast that benefits the various programs offered at the Center. Local business leaders, educators, and politicians serve as "Celebrity Waiters" and purchase a table of ten for their friends and/or colleagues. The waiters serve breakfast to their guests and each guest leaves a "tip" that is a donation to the Cardinal Shehan Center. Past Celebrity speakers include Ed Cooley, Mike Lupica, Gail Goodrich, Frank Gifford, Jack Welch, Jim Nantz, Rod Thorn, Tiki Barber, Dan Hicks, Brian Cashman, and Bishop Frank Caggiano.

Our 31st Annual Celebrity Breakfast will be held at Vazzano's Four Seasons in Stratford, CT on November 6, 2018. The event will start promptly at 7:30 a.m. and will end by 9:30 a.m.  All proceeds from this event will benefit the Cardinal Shehan Center's After School and Saturday Program.

To purchase tickets or for more information please call Lorraine at (203) 336-4468.


Companies can purchase a table of ten for $1,250, which includes the waiter fee of $250. Co-sponsorship of this event is available for $5,000. Sponsors are mentioned in the program and also printed on the tip cards, which are distributed to over 450 guests. Sponsors also have the option to display their company banner and distribute promotional material.  Individual tickets can also be purchased for $100.00.
