  • Diner DayGE's annual Diner Day 12/9!

    The GE Tax Team started this wonderful event 15 years ago, swapping their spreadsheets for order pads and coffee carafes, to raise a few thousand dollars for the kids of Domus. Today this event raises over $300k and attracts "tips" of $10k! Join our GE friends as they wait tables to make sure Domus youth have every shot at happy adulthoods: Parkway Diner, December 9th between 7:30am and 2:30pm. DON'T MISS THE DONUTS!
