Tip Your Waiter is a swift, enjoyable, unique luncheon event centered around raising needed funds to assist the agency in providing free healing and protective services.
This year, the event boasts a special Celebrity Host Edition, where tables will be led by outstanding, prominent, and special members of our local community.

"We greatly appreciate our donors who are engaged with us to serve the community and have an impact in creating a safe, thriving community. We have a lot of exciting news to share about what is happening in the organization and what is ahead."
