DALLAS: After much prayerful consideration and with a saddened heart, Council for Life has made the decision to cancel their Fall Celebrating Life Luncheon. Instead of hosting a large gathering, they will hold a small outdoor dinner for Table Hosts or those who would like to be Hosts for the minimum contribution of $2,500. The dinner, which has been generously underwritten, will showcase Council for Life’s 2020 beneficiaries, thank their Honorary Luncheon Chairs, Lisa and Clay Cooley, and provide guests with an inspiring message from pro-life advocate and Super Bowl champion Benjamin Watson, who will be traveling to Dallas to be at the event. Raffle prizes include a chance to win a new car from Clay Cooley Auto Group and a diamond cross necklace from William Noble Rare Jewels.
“Every year, we look forward to gathering with you at our annual Celebrating Life Luncheon to stand together for life,” said 2019-2020 President, Cathy Sisk. “This was not a decision made lightly, but rather one on which we weighed the thoughtful feedback of our supporters and beneficiaries. At the forefront of our decision was how to maximize the funds that Council for Life grants to our beneficiaries.”
Council for Life remains committed to raising funds for its 19 outstanding Luncheon beneficiaries whose needs are now greater than ever. CFL’s hope is that the community will be moved to generously provide their support, knowing that every dollar will go directly to these organizations on the “front line,” actively furthering Council for Life’s mission of empowering women, men and youth to make life-affirming choices.
Since 2001, Council for Life has raised $8.29 million to fund a multitude of nonprofit agencies in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. These agencies and their invaluable services include pregnancy resource centers, adoption, residential maternity homes, youth mentoring, parenting and life skills education, sexual risk avoidance and targeted media campaigns to reach women in unplanned pregnancies.
