TIPS 2019: February 5th from 5-8pm!
AT participating restaurants all over st. johns county!
Every year, our annual "Tips for Kids Sake" dinner event provides an opportunity to enjoy a great dinner, be entertained and support a good cause, all at the same time! This ever popular event places local "Celebrity Waiters" at local restaurants, where they work to wait tables and collect tips. Then, all tips are donated back to Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Johns County (BBBS).
These local celebs are tasked with recruiting their family, friends and colleagues to come and sit in their section during "Tips for Kids Sake". We also encouraged them to dress up in accordance with the annual theme; in the past, we've had famous faces, politicians, superheros, you name it! Coming out to a "Tips" restaurant will guarantee you dinner and a show!
"Tips" is the major fundraiser of the year for Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Johns County. All funds raised goes to expand mentoring programs throughout St. Johns County, allowing us to reach more kids in the community. We place children in professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that ‘change children’s live for the better, forever’. Reservations are strongly encouraged for those wanting to attend. For more information, contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at (904) 829-9986.
