On Thursday, Oct. 24, officials with the Pregnancy Care Centers of Aroostook will be gathering at the Northeastland Hotel for their 11th annual fall fund-raising banquet. The purpose of the banquet is to invite friends, business associates and community leaders who may not know about the center.
“Attendees can hear firsthand about the ministry through our program presentation and client testimonies. While the dinner provides an opportunity for many community members to learn about the center for the first time, it is primarily a fund-raising event. It is also a time to reignite interest and enthusiasm for those who perhaps already know about the center but have been out of touch for a while. Additionally, it is a time for current supporters to see and appreciate anew the lives touched through the Pregnancy Care Center of Aroostook’s ministry,” said Christie Corey, the center’s director.
The theme for this year’s banquet is “Together for Life.”
The speaker this year is Myfanwy Bennet Saunders, who served as a director for Women’s Pregnancy Center in Peoria, Ill., for 23 years and as director of Women’s Ministries for Peoria Rescue Ministries for six years. Myfanwy has been a women’s speaker in Canada and the U.S. for conferences, retreats and seminars.
The Pregnancy Care Centers of Aroostook are located in Fort Kent, Houlton, with headquarters in Presque Isle.
