The gala is an annual fundraising dinner held each Fall aimed at introducing new donors to the ministry as well as celebrate life with our current supporters. Each year we aim to fill the room with individuals who can impact the issue of abortion in our community in a significant way. Gala guests are invited by table hosts to be introduced to the ministry, hear testimonies of transformed lives, and be encouraged through a special featured speaker.
The event is by invitation. We hope you will consider praying about attending or hosting a table of friends who have the capacity to give to change lives in our city.

Talk to Gianna Jessen for just a few minutes and she’s likely to punctuate every sentence with a deep, infectious laugh. Talk to her for a while longer and, as her story unfolds, it becomes apparent that the constant joy has overcome unspeakable challenges.
In many regards, her life has been a short path littered with obstacles at every turn: challenges, betrayal, and cruelty. But for every setback, there have also been invitations into the greatest halls of government. A life that was never meant to be has been used to inspire—even save—others.
You see, Gianna Jessen was intended to die before she was born, just another one of the 1.2 million abortions each year in the United States. Instead of death, though, Gianna was bathed in a burning saline solution, but she overcame to enter the world. Two months premature and weighing just two and a half pounds, she spent her first couple of months in a hospital. Eventually, she entered the foster care system.
