Thank you for your interest in joining us as a Hope Starts Here Breakfast Table Captain!

The Hope Starts Here Breakfast is LifeWire’s annual free fundraising breakfast. It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring together community members, leaders, friends, family and co-workers who want to learn about our work and support our mission. It’s an inspiring event! There is no cost to attend. At the end of the breakfast, guests will be asked to make a gift or pledge to LifeWire.

Table Captains commit to filling a table of 10. Through these individual efforts, we hope to have 500 guests join us to raise more than $250,000 at the event!

If you would like to volunteer as a Hope Starts Here Table Captain, please fill in the form below or email Samantha. In late July, we will send you a Table Captain packet including printed and/or electronic Save the Date invitations for you to personalize, as well as detailed instructions.

Table Captain Responsibilities

  • Put the date and time of the event – Friday, September 22 at 7:00 a.m. – on your calendar and be there!
  • Fill a table of 10 by inviting and confirming nine guests to join you. LifeWire will provide Save the Date cards, email and hard copy invitation, scripts and timelines for you.
  • Turn in your completed guest list, including contact information and dietary restrictions, no later than Wednesday, September 13.
  • Arrive at Meydenbauer Center no later than 7:00 a.m. on Friday, September 22 to register, pick up your Table Captain packet and greet your guests. Go immediately to your table so your guests will find you there when they arrive.
  • Enjoy the event!
  • Pass out the pledge cards, pens and envelopes when instructed to do so – but not before. Fill out your pledge card (even if you just write us a note) to set an example for your guests.
  • Collect all pledge cards and place them in the teal envelope. Turn in your teal envelope to the LifeWire staff members at the door on your way out of the room.

Please fill in and submit the form below if you’re interested in joining us as a Table Captain!

Each person who comes through LifeWire’s doors has one thing in common – they are experiencing domestic violence. Yet every survivor’s story is unique.

Every survivor brings to the table a myriad of other factors – including income level, gender, race, immigration status, access to healthcare, sexual orientation or age – that impact the risks they face, the resources available to them and the choices they make.

Some of our participants have to choose between ending their relationship with their abusive partner or becoming homeless. Some have to choose between remaining undocumented or filing for citizenship and risking deportation. Others risk loss of professional or community status. Some fear that they will not be taken seriously.

To understand the unique barriers and challenges survivors of domestic violence face, we must also understand the other issues that impact their lives, their families and their communities.

Starting in September – through our Voices From The Field E-Newsletter – we’ll be exploring one issue at a time through the lens of domestic violence. Together, we’ll explore “Domestic Violence and…”.
