Table Ambassadors

Table Ambassadors

Table Ambassadors are the heart of the WAAAll of Impact Luncheon attendance. Each Table Ambassador strives to fill a table of 10, cultivating a team of passionate supporters who want to make a difference in the lives of families impacted by autism. Table Ambassadors are recognized for their support in the WAAAll of Impact Luncheon program and in social media posts.

Table Ambassador Duties

Table Ambassadors for WAAAll of Impact Luncheon serve a critical role in the success of the event. By pledging to sell a full table of 10 seats, table ambassadors ensure that the event is one of the largest and most successful fundraisers for the Washington Autism Alliance & Advocacy. WAAA also strives to assemble a diverse group of table ambassadors in order to fully represent all communities in support of autism.

There is no financial commitment to become a table ambassador. WAAA provides resources and assistance through the Table Ambassador Committee to maximize the number of table ambassadors who successfully fill their table.

Tools for Table Ambassadors

Organizing a Table

Filling your table begins with extending the invitation. Invite friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, or whoever else you feel may have an interest. The best invitation for your guests is a personal one. Invite them in person, by telephone, or e-mail. Use the sample ask letter below and either customize it to better match your tone and style or send it as is. The most important thing is to extend the invitation.

Start Early! Don’t wait until the last minute. People’s calendars fill up quickly. Getting on their schedules earlier will give you the highest likelihood of successfully filling your table. Even if they don’t buy the tickets right away, your potential guests will be aware of the Auction and of your desire to have them attend.

Why Guests Should Attend

Attending the Luncheon not only reinforces a strong sense of pride in our community, but also provides critical financial support for WAAA to continue its mission. The event serves as one of the primary fundraisers for WAAA.

Beyond making an impact on our future, the Luncheon is a fun and energizing afternoon.
