What is the role of a Virtual Table Captain?

Table Captains are "community connectors" who are passionate about the mission of Bailey-Boushay House, and want to get their friends and families involved in strengthening our community by supporting individuals and families who are transitioning out of homelessness.

Your role as a Virtual Table Captain is to invite guests to 'attend' the August 27 Swirl event through their computer or other mobile devices, and ask them to join you and others in making a gift to Bailey-Boushay House at a level that feels comfortable for them.
