Healing Hearts Society Fundraising Breakfast.  A Hybrid Event  

Become a Table Captain

By becoming an Ele’s Place Ann Arbor Table Captain for our annual Healing Hearts Society Fundraising Breakfast, you become part of a special group of volunteers whom over the last 14 years have helped to raise over $4.1 million for Ele’s Place Ann Arbor.   Whether this is your first time or your fifth time serving as a Table Captain, our objectives are to make this a rewarding experience for you and be as simple as possible.  

The annual Healing Hearts Breakfast is our largest fundraising event and serves as a vehicle to introduce individuals to Ele’s Place Ann Arbor.  What can your guests expect? A one-hour complimentary breakfast (complimentary breakfast available for in-person guests only, virtual guests can attend in their PJ’, coffee or tea is optional) in which inspirational stories are shared on how Ele’s Place Ann Arbor brings hope and healing to children, teens and families after the death of a parent, sibling or other significant person.  Guests who attend the Breakfast will be asked for a donation at the end of the program.    Financial gifts are critical to maintaining our programs at NO COST to families. Tax-deductible contributions are welcomed from individuals, businesses, foundations and community groups.


Your role as a Table Captain

  • Be an Ambassador of Ele’s Place Ann Arbor

  • Raise awareness about the Ele’s Place Ann Arbor Mission: Creating awareness of and support for grieving children, teens, and their families.

  • Encourage potential guests to attend a virtual “Tour of the Heart”**   

  • Determine if your table will be hosted virtually or in-person*   (In-person is limited to 10 tables for the 2021 HHS Breakfast)

  • Invite guests to attend the HHS Breakfast with the understanding that this is a fundraising event and they will be asked for a donation at the end of the program

  • Fill a table of 10 guests including yourself


The importance of a Tour of the Heart **

  • A “Tour of the Heart” is not a fundraising event, It’s an inspirational opportunity to learn more about Ele’s Place Ann Arbor

  • 1 hour in length  

  • Held virtually with members of our development and program staff  

  • HHS Breakfast guests are 5x more likely to donate after attending a tour
