The 14th annual Hope Center Thanksgiving Dinner

Dec. 11, 2012

The 14th annual Hope Center Thanksgiving Dinner and Auction was held recently at the Country Springs Hotel. The Hope Center, 502 N. East Ave. in Waukesha, is backed by congregations of many faiths. Ralph Zick is the executive director. One of the traditions of the dinner is that local pastors serve as waiters during the dessert course. Guests at each table are encouraged to tip them. These tips go to The Hope Center, and the pastor who receives the highest total is awarded a T-shirt for his winning ways.
