Child Abuse Prevention Center Annual Charity Event

Mercy participated in this year's fundraiser for the Child Abuse Prevention Center of Dallas at the Park Cities Hilton. Yours truly was a celebrity waiter for an evening. The staff at Mercy has nothing to fear from me. I donned the black Mercy t-shirt and served to friends in black tie. One of the partners who got a bit smart was served his salad on his lap. Still in the plate of course! Mattie Roberts, TV host of Mattie in the Morning, chaired the event and notables such as Congressman Pete Sessions, Congressman Martin Frost, and CNN reporter, Ashley Banfield attended. A host of restarauntuers and chefs all served up a fine meal to help raise funds for this very worthy cause. The evening raised over $150,000 for the Prevention Center. Johnny Reno and his big band played to a packed room. What an incredible evening for an incredible cause. No, I won't be serving at Mercy. I'll let the pros do that!
