9th Annual Breakfast Of Champions For The Homeless

Reserve your seat now for the 9th annual Breakfast for Champions of the Homeless one of Broward County’s most unique benefits. What makes this event so incredibly fun are the “Celebrity Waiters,” some of Broward County’s most important community leaders who work for “tips”, serving breakfast to their VIP guests. All proceeds benefit Broward Partnership for the Homeless, Inc.(BPHI).

Breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, November 13, 2009 at the Broward County Central Homeless Assistance Center on the Huizenga Family Campus, 920 NW 7th Avenue, in Fort Lauderdale. The event is co-chaired by Charlene Bender, VP of SunTrust Bank, Roberta Stanley, partner in the law firm of Brinkley, Morgan, Solomon, Tatum, Stanley, Lunny & Crosby, LLB, Judy Stern, Judith Stern Consulting, Inc. and Coutney Crush, Esq., Crushlaw, PA.

There is no admission charge because our Celebrity Waiters look forward to collecting large “tips” for their excellent service. Attendees who purchase their “BPHI Tip” money prior to the event are able to precede directly to the “Fun Pass Lane” the morning of the event thereby by-passing the registration line. Seating is limited to 200 guests. To become a sponsor or to make a reservation or contact Berne Teeple, Director of Development at 954-832-7037 or bteeple@bphi.org
