Fundraising Banquet

favicon

The annual fundraising banquet is AVA Care’s largest and most financially significant fundraiser of the year. It is critical that AVA Care continues to have all of the necessary resources to serve women facing unintended pregnancy as effectively as possible, so that they are empowered to carry their baby to term and parent or make an adoption plan. If you are interested in getting involved in our next fundraising banquet, contact Susan Null or 540.434.0685. For more information on underwriting or table host responsibilities please review the questions below.

This year’s banquet will be held on October 2, 2018. We are pleased to announce our speaker will be Tom Glessner, J.D., founder and President of National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA). NIFLA exists to protect life-affirming pregnancy centers that empower abortion-vulnerable women and families to choose life for their unborn children.

Our hope for this banquet is that it will inspire and motivate you to STAY THE COURSE as you support us through your finances, prayers and invitation to others to join in supporting AVA Care. We are so thankful for NIFLA and excited that you get to hear firsthand from a true advocate fighting for pregnancy centers just like AVA Care.
