WHAT: Maitre D’ Volunteer
WHEN: Monday 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 which is filled with our #500 homeless guests sitting at their individual tables. Each table is 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 special table of 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. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings will be serving once again as the 'Head Waiter' at this years banquet. Our Mayor comes to 'serve', not to be 'served'. Come and help the Mayor give our #500 guests the most magical Christmas of their lives. You may very well end up having the most magical Christmas of your own life.
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.
- On a related note if you are a solo Maitre' D we will try and pair you up with another solo server so you can best serve your homeless guests.
