Bring your friends, your family and your SVdP group together at the 2022 Morning of Hope Breakfast.

Table Captains are the reason for the success of this community breakfast. Table Captains utilize their personal network of friends and colleagues who they believe will be moved by the mission of SVdP and invite guests to attend. You can also share a table and be a Co-Captain. Either way, there is no cost for the event to you or to your guests, but there is the expectation that guests will give a donation of support to St. Vincent de Paul Georgia.

Ok, I’m in! What do I do now?

  1. Register as a Table Captain to get started. Click Here for Step-by-Step instructions.
  2. Set a fundraising goal for your table. Think big! 
  3. Start inviting your guests.
    • Invite guests to join you at the breakfast, and share your goal with them.
    • Filling your table begins with extending an invitation. Invite friends, family, neighbors, colleagues—whomever you feel may have an interest. The best invitations occur in person, over the phone, or via e-mail, but feel free to invite your friends over social media, too! Be sure to read over the Table Captain Handbook for tips and resources to use when inviting your guests.
  4. Register your guests online. Click Here for Step-by-Step instructions.
    • Please provide an email address for each guest. A few days prior to the breakfast, we will email everyone an important event reminder with time, location and parking options.
    • Friday, August 12, 2022 is the FINAL deadline to receive your guest names. We will begin seating arrangements at this time. Guests whose names are not received by August 12th may register on-site, as space allows.

What does it mean to be a Table Captain?

  • Table Captains commit to filling a table of 10 (including yourself).
  • Table Co-Captains commit to filling half a table ( 4 guests and yourself). SVdP can match you with another Co-Captain, or you may recruit one yourself. The result is a table of 8-9 guests and 2 Co-Captains.
  • Invite your friends and family to celebrate as a guest at a wonderful breakfast and encourage them to plan to make a gift to SVdP at the event.
  • Table Captains are the backbone of ensuring a successful event. As the official recruiters and promoters for the breakfast, we partner with our Table Captains to help spread the word about the work of SVdP to encourage friends, family, and colleagues to build a community of hope together. Any individual, partners/couple, company, affinity group, or charity group can serve as a Table Captain. Each table seats a maximum of 10 guests. IMPORTANT: Table Captains are NOT financially obligated to pre-purchase seats and there is NO penalty for not filling the table – just try your best!

Table Captain Quick Tips

  • Don’t wait until the last minute. Getting on people’s schedules earlier gives you the highest likelihood of successfully filling your table. Even if they don’t reserve their seats right away, your potential guests will be aware of the breakfast and of your desire to have them attend.
  • What should I tell my potential guests?
    • Begin by sharing your passion for St. Vincent de Paul Georgia and the critical work we do to help working poor and individuals and families across the state.
    • Let them know this breakfast will be the most inspiring and moving event they will attend all year, as we share stories of hope and help through our programs and services.
    • The Morning of Hope breakfast is one of our largest and most important fundraising events of the year. It is a significant source of funding for our comprehensive programs and services. Though the event is free, underwritten through corporate sponsorships, your guests will be asked to make a financial donation at the event, no matter how big or small.
  • As the event approaches, don’t forget to remind and thank them!

We recommend setting a $500- $1,000 goal for your table, which equates to $50- $100 per person. If you think you will exceed this goal, feel free to set a higher target! And if you raise less than this goal, that is great too. Every cent counts toward the SVdP mission!
