Inside the Hannah Storm Foundation's Celebrity Waiter Night fundraiser

Hannah Storm is passionate about a lot of things.

As an anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter, sports is obviously at the top of that list.

But she also is dedicated herself to children's health.

For example, the Hannah Storm Foundation raises awareness and funds surgeries for children around the world living with vascular birthmarks and whose parents cannot afford the cost of surgery.

The foundation held its Celebrity Waiter Night hosted by Storm on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015, at Manhattan's New York Athletic Club. Athletes, media professionals and other public figures volunteered as waiters, serving food and drinks to guests.

"Celebrity Waiter Night was an amazing evening for the Hannah Storm Foundation," Storm says. "This is a cause I hold close to my heart, and I couldn't have asked for a better group of celebrity waiters, presenters, honorees, auction item donors and guests to help support the foundation."

Honorees at the event were Dr. Milton Waner, director of the Vascular Birthmarks Institute of New York at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, and William T. Sullivan, the president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House New York. Kate White, former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, also served as a presenter.
