Thank you to all who attended our 2015 Banquet, Foundations for Life! Nearly 350 people came to learn how we are helping Southeast Michigan women facing unexpected pregnancies - and how they could help build the foundations for a strong, enduring ministry.
Our featured speaker, Melissa Ohden, shared her experience as the survivor of an abortion attempt and emphasized the importance of providing pregnancy options that are truly pro-woman and life-affirming.
We shared the growth and successes of our center over the past year, such as tripling the number of ultrasound services provided, nearly doubling our overall client visits, and establishing plans for sexual health risk avoidance education. At the same time, we asked attendees to support us in establishing a financial stability that would prevent cutbacks and allow us to further expand in community outreach.
This year's banquet would have been impossible without all the time and effort poured in by underwriters, table hosts, volunteers and staff.
Thank you for all your hard work!
By the end of the night, many gave generously and committed to financial giving, volunteering, or praying for AWPC. Thank you - your generosity will mean a world of difference for women and their children, both in the next year and in eternity!
