It will be Tye versus Chang Monday night at Chili’s.
All day Monday, November 28, Chili’s will host a fundraiser for the Diamond Bar High School Interact Club. From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., patrons that bring in a special flyer will have 15 percent of their bill donated to the club; from 5 to 9 p.m., Mayor Steve Tye and Mayor Pro Tem Ling-Ling Chang will participate in a Tip the Mayors Battle, with both serving food and vying for big tips, which will be given to the club.
“The fundraiser at Chili's will be a good time,” Tye said. “It will help raise much-needed funds so the Interact Club at Diamond Bar High School can be self-sufficient and accomplish their goals. Diamond Bar is a very generous community and I am confident it will be a success.”
Interact, now in its second year at DBHS, is the high school affiliate of the Rotary Club, and both Tye and Chang are members of Walnut Valley Rotary.
“As co-advisor to the DBHS Interact Club, I'm encouraging the Diamond Bar community to come out and support our youth, schools and their club activities,” Chang said. “We're going to make it fun with the Tip the Mayors Battle. I know Mayor Tye will try to charm his way into getting more tips; however, hard work trumps all, especially in my high heels!”
Tye has some fighting words himself.
“Why should I get all the tips? Because I will out-hustle the Mayor Pro Tem!” he said. “I will show people what a true public servant I am. She will fall off her high heels in the first hour or so!”
