Saturday, November 5th 2016 Save a Life Intl had its Annual Fundraising Banquet! What a blessing! Over 150 people came to support our work with women in crisis pregnancies in Ukraine. Guests enjoyed a tasty meal in the beautiful ballroom in the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Jenkintown. We were happy to have guests of different denominations, as well as representatives of charitable organizations, churches and business organizations. All of them were united by a goal: to support life by helping women in crisis, educate the young generation of Ukrainians about the sanctity of life and to show God’s love to those who can’t defend themselves.
A true messages of love were conveyed through music performed by Vlad Postevka, Olesia Gordinskaya and Martha Zaliznyak. Our guests had a chance to hear and see the video of our clients from Ukraine who received help through Life Centers and whose babies were saved from abortion by the compassion showed by our volunteers and counselors.
The banquet raised over $18, 000 in one time gifts and over $2, 000 in monthly pledges. All the funds will go directly to support the Life Center and for opening a new Life Center in the city of Zaporizhya in February next year. It is a great and encouraging start towards our projected need of $90,000.
We are grateful to our volunteers, who donated the food, decorated the venue, prepared the program and served the guests. Also, thank you to our sponsors who generously supported our event.
It was a wonderful time of celebration of our journey in serving people and sharing God’s love. We want to express our gratitude to all our partners who believe in what we do and were so generous!
Please, don’t forget that every prayer, every dollar will make a difference. One more life will be spared; one more soul will be reached for Christ and changed for the better!
