ReeceNichols Lee’s Summit recently held Shock & Claus breakfasts at three Lee’s Summit restaurants.

“We decided to do this, and just like always, the number of people who wanted to participate blew me away,” said Chad Dumas, office manager. “We ended up with 60 participants, and were able to make the holidays a little more special for the waitresses at Neighborhood Cafe, Ginger Sue’s and First Things First.”

“This is a group of difference makers, and I’m so blessed to work with each of them.”

Shock & Claus breakfasts are holiday giving events where a group of people dine together at a local restaurant and after paying for their meals each diner leaves the waitstaff a $100 tip. The movement began in Denver, CO in 2015 and has spread to many more cities across the country. More information is available on the website The website suggests that interested groups find a local restaurant and contact the owner or manager to ask if they have any outstanding employees that might be going through a particularly difficult time.

“Pretty much every day when I leave the office, I think about just how blessed I am to work with such amazing people. This isn’t lip speak. They literally are the best of the best,” says Dumas.

The ReeceNichols Lee’s Summit office is located at 222 SW Main Street. You can find them on the web at
