Banquet of Life 2014
Dear friends of the ministry,
We invite you to be a special part of helping our annual ALC (A Loving Choice) Pregnancy Resource Center, Inc. “Banquet of Life” fundraiser be a resounding success.
The banquet is designed to increase awareness and support of this vital ministry. As you may know, ALC opened its doors in January of 2006. That first year we experienced 350 client visits. Last year, 2013, we had over 1,400 client visits. All of our services are free to men and women and include peer counseling, pregnancy tests, material assistance through an Earn While You Learn program, parenting and homemaking classes, weekly Bible studies, post abortion recovery bible study, information about the dangers of abortion and the benefits of abstinence and adoption, community referrals, etc.
Now we are adding an exciting new dimension to our services – we are becoming medically licensed to perform limited ultrasounds on abortion minded clients.
As we grow and continue to provide life giving programs and resources it is critical that we connect with more individuals, families, and businesses to partner with us.
This year’s event is being held in the evening on Thursday, September 25, 2013.
PLEASE NOTE the banquet location – it will be at the newly opened Gheens Foundation Lodge in the Parklands at Floyds Fork. Our keynote speaker will be JULIE ZIGLAR NORMAN.
Julie shared the “Get Motivated” platform with her legendary father, motivational icon Zig Ziglar, for several years before becoming the dynamic, disarming and refreshingly transparent inspirational speaker and author she is today. Her unique experience of being raised by the motivators’ motivator has given her a perspective on life and work that keeps her audiences laughing, crying, and taking notes. You will not want to miss hearing and meeting her.
The ALC banquet provides the venue to share our vision to those who many not know about our important work. It also provides them an opportunity to be a financial supporter. YOU are vital to the success of this banquet as there are people in your influence that would welcome the opportunity to support our work if only invited. Here are some ways you can help:
***UNDERWRITE THE GENERAL BANQUET EXPENSES
