New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas and Morton's The Steakhouse have teamed up to host the fifth annual Celebrity Servers Dinner on Monday, Dec. 8, 2014.
Thomas, his teammates and celebrity friends will trade in their uniforms for plates and aprons to serve guests who will enjoy a fabulous four-course meal of Morton's signature cuisine and drinks.
All event proceeds will benefit Thomas' ICAN Foundation – a non-profit dedicated to tackling the epidemic of childhood obesity in America.
"We are taking an active approach to make a difference in the lives of our youth. As a kid, I spent a majority of my time outside playing different sports and games," Thomas said. "These days youngsters have so many different distractions with the TV, computers, video games and cell phones that we need to make it a priority to show them that being active can be both fun and rewarding."
