(from 12:15pm - 02:15pm)

Banquet Red Carpet

WHAT: Banquet Red Carpet Volunteer
WHEN: Monday December 24th from 12:15PM to 2:15PM
WHERE: Dallas Ballroom at downtown Dallas Omni Hotel


Imagine that on Christmas Eve Day—December 24th that there is a Red Carpet laid out ‘inside’ the Omni Hotel. Now imagine that the Red Carpet (just like you would see at the Academy Awards) is lined by more than 1,000 volunteers who are clapping and cheering for our 500 homeless men, women AND children as they make the walk from their luxurious hotel rooms to the Dallas Ballroom to enjoy the most special Christmas banquet of their lives. Finally imagine that you are one of those 1,000 volunteers welcoming our homeless guests as you are standing proudly in your military uniform. 

However the action does not end when our last homeless guest walks off the Red Carpet into the banquet hall. You will be invited to follow their steps into the Ballroom into your own special roped off side seating area so you can enjoy the fabulous stage show with your Master of Ceremonies—Jeff Crilley—formerly of Fox 4 fame. Traditionally the Mayor or Deputy Mayor also speaks a few words and maybe you may even hear a few remarks from that SoupMan guy.

It’s a rare opportunity to be up close and personal with the homeless of Dallas, Texas and help 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.

p.s. The Banquet Red Carpet Volunteer opportunity is the SoupMan’s absolute favorite!
