“Table captain” is the name we give to an individual that is bringing 10+ guests with them to Changing Lives. They are our stars. They share a strong passion for StarVista’s mission and bringing awareness to the impact we are making in San Mateo County. Whether your goal is to raise the most funds, or help your network discover our services, becoming a Table Captain is an impactful way to make Changing Lives a success!
