Thank You for Being a Table Captain!

Thank you for being a Table Captain for the ProKids Friends of Children Breakfast!  This section of the ProKids website is just for you, with everything you need to fill your table.

You ensure the success of this event, our only fundraising event. By filling a table with 10 people, including yourself, you share the ProKids story with even more community members like yourself.

Some quick facts about the Breakfast:

  • It is held at Xavier University’s Cintas Center.
  • It is Wednesday, May 18, and begins promptly at 8 a.m. and ends at 9 a.m.
  • It is free to attend.
  • This is a fundraiser and we will ask your guests to support our work. There is no minimum or maximum donation.

When you invite your guests, here are some thoughts to help you explain why you support ProKids:

  • ProKids Court Appointed Special Advocates, known as CASA Volunteers, provide a voice for abused and neglected children in Hamilton County.
  • In 2021, ProKids served 1,101 of these children. But there are about 3,500 children in the child protection system who need our advocacy.
  • Financial support from donors goes directly to reaching children in need. It helps pay for the recruitment, training and support of our CASA Volunteers as well as for working with alliances in the child protection system to improve care for even more of the abused and neglected children in our community.

The more personal your invitation, the better. When you invite friends and business associates, it is your own personal enthusiasm for the mission of ProKids which helps them say “yes.” That’s why we suggest contacting your guests by phone or in person, using this Script – adding your own passion for ProKids.

We understand that sometimes email is the only way to reach someone so here’s some suggested wording that you can paste into a personal email invitation, along with a video that helps explain ProKids in about 3 minutes.

If you want to send a printed invitation as a reminder to your guests, please contact Grace at 513-281-2000. You can also print out or paste into an email the Invitation.

Your reservation list is due to ProKids on April 29, 2022.
