Focus Dinner Committee

This is our largest educational/fundraising event. It takes place annually each fall at the Grand Traverse Resort. A dynamic prolife speaker is brought to Traverse City to speak to approximately 700 attendees.  The goal of the this dinner is to raise awareness of current prolife issues to the local public, reenergize our prolife base, and raise funds for our local office and the educational campaigns which reach the entire state.

Our annual golf outing helps keeps the doors to our office open and the lights on! This is a short term commitment that only lasts a few months each year (March, April, May). You also get some free golf with the other committee members!

 

Church Representative

Is there a church representative to serve as a liaison between Right to Life and your church?  Please call our office and/or ask your pastor. There are many activities and information that we would like to share with our churches. We reach out to churches to remember Mother's Day and Father’s Day with flower and candy sales, let churches know about prayer needs and organized prayer events, inform churches about prolife candidates running for office, help pastors and congregations know and understand currents events happening on the local, state, and national level, and provide congregations with the opportunity to be a voice for life with their name in print in our January 22 newspaper ad. Please consider this important ministry.

Staying high tech in this rapidly changing culture is tough. Would you consider offering your expertize in these areas? We would truly appreciate high-tech prolifers to assist us when we are having computers issues.

We need more student groups (there are currently 3 in our area; St. Mary’s Lake Leelanau, St. Francis, and Northwestern MI College) to reach the hearts and minds of the next generation!  Please consider starting a group at your church or school. Some student activities include the Oratory Contest, Marching in the Cherry Festival Parade, the Baby of the Year Contest, helping groups bring in speakers and organizing activities.
