'Community Tips' for the Christian Center

ANDERSON — The Christian Center is serving up another new way to raise funds.

The organization is holding its inaugural “Community Tips Day” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at Texas Roadhouse.

Members from businesses and organizations around the community are pitching in by acting as “celebrity servers” at the restaurant. Whatever tips they earn will go toward operations at the Christian Center.

Eddie Robinson, director of development, says the “who’s who of Anderson” will act as servers. Popular representatives from businesses and organizations such as First Merchants Bank, St. Vincent Anderson, Regional Hospital and United Faith Housing are helping.

Patrons can order from the regular menu, Robinson said. He hopes to raise $5,000 for the Christian Center during the event.

The luncheon is a way to raise funds, show support to other Madison County organizations and to introduce the Christian Center to more people.

“Eighty to 90 percent of the battle is awareness,” Robinson said. “When you do creative things, it stimulates awareness. We believe awareness raises funds.”

Community Tips Day isn’t the first new event the Christian Center has implemented this year. Last month, the organization held its inaugural “Walk A Mile in My Shoes” to raise money for the men’s shelter.

“It’s just what it is, if you keep doing the same thing and expect different results, we know what that means,” Robinson said. “You have to be able to get out of the box to brand yourself differently.”
