Supporting the Texas Center for the Missing, Champions for Children presents benefactors with an evening of hilarious standup and delectable cuisine while helping fund the Center's philanthropic mission of missing-child prevention and recovery. Guests dig into toothsome chow, choosing from a variety of vegetarian and meat-laden dishes while chortling at hilarious standups and mad libs whispered to the comedians by the servers. After an opening set from Cliff West, nationally recognized laughmeister Bob Smiley headlines the event, bringing his manic energy and quirky physicality to anecdotes on relationships, raising kids, and everyday life. Live and silent auctions offer further opportunities for charitable largesse, and an event-wide raffle gives guests the chance to win fabulous prizes and impress dates with their raffle-fixing abilities. Attendees' vehicles can eagerly listen in on the show from free parking spots.
Renowned psychic and medium Chip Coffey, star of A&E shows Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal and Paranormal State, ushers audiences through preternatural territories in Coffey Talk, a witty and cathartic journey into the unknown. Clairvoyant, clairaudient, and as scintillating as a ghost-whispering Truman Capote, Coffey uses his psychic gifts to counsel the bereaved, ease the haunted, and terrify fraudulent realtors. In this special round of Coffey Talk, Chip guides the two-hour event through two hair-raising chapters of powerful emotion. The show starts with a question-and-answer session, where Chip explains the paranormal and mankind’s inherent psychic abilities before honoring queries about his daunting experiences, his TV shows, and continuity errors in Ghostbusters. For Act II, Chip puts on his psychic-reading glasses to contact spirits for select members of the audience.

The Dinner Detective eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into four-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea or drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or to feed to their pet goat.
