DeVos Place Ballrooms
303 Monroe Avenue NW
Grand Rapids
$100 per person / $1,000 per table

The 34th annual Focus on Life Benefit Dinner will be the largest prolife banquet in Michigan, will incorporate 25 student volunteers, and will feature Gov. Mike Huckabee, Fox News contributor and TV host, as the keynote speaker.

Guest Speaker: Gov. Mike Huckabee

Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007. He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform, and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on prevention.

As a staunch defender of the right to life, Huckabee has stated:

“It’s time that we recognize the Supreme Court is not the supreme being, and we change the policy to be prolife and protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they’re parts to a Buick.” (August 7, 2015)

Special Features

Justin Barclay, host of the WOOD Radio program West Michigan Live, will be the emcee for the evening. Barclay has been heard in major markets all across the country, including Philadelphia, Detroit, Tampa, Cincinnati, and Louisville, and is a frequent guest host for the nationally syndicated Glenn Beck program.

Grand Rapids Right to Life president, Laura Alexandria, will give an update on the organization’s accomplishments in the past year.

Emily Ranschaert, Grand Rapids Right to Life contestant, will present her moving speech that propelled her to win the state oratory contest.
