The stars were out in full force at Ruth’s Chris steak house northside June 25 for Gary Brackett’s celebrity waiter night! The former Colts player and several friends in the world of sports donned aprons and served steak dinners to guests who paid $250 a plate to help raise money for Brackett’s Impact Foundation.
“It’s a little crazy,” laughed Brackett as he secured an apron over his shirt and tie. “I know there may be some burned fingers, but there is nothing like raising money with good company and great steak!”
Brackett, who no longer is with the Colts, is not sure where he will be next. He says he is leaving his options open and wants to do what’s best for his family.
In the meantime, he continues his work with the Impact foundation. Brackett started the foundation in 2006 to provide resources and opportunities to underprivileged kids.
Overall, the night went off without a hitch, although there was a lot of ducking under doorways (Indiana Pacer Roy Hibbert), chit chat while serving (WTHR sports director and Carmel resident Dave Calabro), and signing autographs with Pacer Coach Frank Vogel and Butler Basketball Coach Brad Stevens.
