How do I participate with my friends and family?

Even though there are no physical tables to sit at with your family and friends, there are still multiple ways you can participate together virtually. For example, you can organize a virtual watch party, create a virtual table, or join a virtual team. Check out the instructions below!

Join a Virtual Table

You can see if your table captain has created a virtual table by clicking the “Start Here” button on the virtual luncheon page. Click “Join a Team” then search for your table captain’s name. If your table captain’s name doesn’t appear, check to see if they intend to make a team or follow the directions below to start one yourself!

Reminder: You do not need to join a team in order to watch the program or make a donation.
