WHAT: Maitre D’ Volunteer
WHEN: Saturday December 24th from 11:30AM to 1:30PM
WHERE: Dallas Ballroom at downtown Dallas Omni Hotel
Imagine that on Christmas Eve Day—December 24th you are in the Dallas Ballroom and there are 50 tables with 10 homeless people per table. Each table is elegantly set up with fine linen,exquisite glass crystal and polished tableware.
As a Maitre D’ your job for the banquet is to serve the sumptuous dishes prepared by the master chefs of the Omni Hotel to your precious homeless guests. Your mission is not just to serve their meal but to engage your guests and make them feel like ‘Kings & Queens.’
It’s a rare opportunity to serve the homeless of Dallas, Texas and personally give them the most magical Christmas of their lives. Come with a ‘Servant’s heart’ and share the love of Jesus with your homeless guests.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Maitre D volunteer slot has a required donation of $250 per person. For example if you have a family of #4--i.e. Father, Mother & two children, it would be $250 per person times 4 people for a total of $1,000. Traditionally families serve together at one table. Larger families may be divided and serve at two adjoining tables. For example a family of #8 would be Father & 3 children at one table and Mother & 3 children at an adjoining table. #8 people x $250 = $2,000.
- Please remember the Maitre D’ protocol. Tuxedoes for Men and Best Christmas Ensembles for Ladies.
- And by the way, the Head Waiter/Maitre D’ at the banquet is traditionally the Mayor (or Deputy Mayor) of Dallas. This tradition of serving as 'Head Waiter' was started by former Mayor Tom Leppert many years ago.
