Life in the 616 @ T.B.D.
Jul 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Prolife issues are not like any other political issue: people live or die when faced with abortion, infanticide, or euthanasia.

Although people shy away from politics, in every election voters face life or death issues, because candidates at every level can impact prolife issues.

Grab a cup o’ joe and enjoy some tasty treats as Thomas discusses how voting for life can protect babies, women, and you!

Guest Speaker
Thomas, prolife ambassador for Grand Rapids Right to Life, will lead a discussion on why it’s important to vote prolife at the ballot box.

RSVP
Space is limited, so please RSVP online (coming soon) by Monday, July 27, 2020.

Food and Beverages
Snacks will be provided, but participants will be responsible to purchase their own beverage.

Focus on Life Benefit Dinner @ DeVos Place Ballrooms
Oct 12 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The 33rd 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.

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)

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

Don’t miss this evening of celebrating life and championing the prolife cause.

Registration
Individual seats and tables can be purchased by completing and submitting a registration form.

Student Volunteers
A limited number of high school students are needed to volunteer at this event. To secure your spot, contact Laura by October 1, 2020.

Coins for Kids
Dec 31 @ 12:00 am

Baby BottleCoins for Kids is a fundraiser for Grand Rapids Right to Life and local pregnancy centers.

Churches and organizations in the Grand Rapids area are encouraged to choose one month to host a baby bottle drive.

Profits benefit Grand Rapids Right to Life and local agencies that provide material support to women and families facing unplanned pregnancies.

It’s easy to host a Coins for Kids baby bottle drive!

Step 1:
Select a month that your church or school would like to participate and call Grand Rapids Right to Life.

Step 2:
Spread the word by putting the dates for the baby bottle drive in your bulletin or newsletter and by making announcements.

Step 3:
Request as many bottles as you need.  We suggest one bottle per family.

Step 4:
Spend the month filling those bottles with your spare change. 

Step 5:
Grand Rapids Right to Life will pick up the bottles at the end of the month and bring them to the bank to get counted.

Join us in this wonderfully easy and tangible way that you can support the prolife efforts of Grand Rapids Right to Life and the work of local pregnancy centers.
