CULLMAN, Ala. – First Source for Women will hold its annual fundraiser banquet Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m. at Loft 212.

The theme for the evening is “Invest in the Gift of Life,” as the faith-based resource center is intent on its mission of nurturing mothers through unexpected pregnancies, equipping them with the skills, resources and a network of support. Currently, First Source for Women offers pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling on adoption and abortion, parenting courses, referrals to medical providers and/or specialists and a baby boutique.

A statement on the center’s website says, “First Source for Women stands with women to provide the care, services, and resources needed so they can experience hope and envision a future with their child. Because when women receive care, experience hope, and see life as sacred, even when unexpected, they become the inspiration and agents of change in their families, communities, and society.”

The banquet is a fundraiser, and the funds raised will go toward the center’s mission of changing the stigma and fear around unplanned and young pregnancies, one mother at a time. While the event is a fundraiser and donations are appreciated, the banquet is absolutely free for the community to attend and enjoy.

“Our organization is completely run on donations, so events like this and our monthly donors are what keep the wheels turning,” shared First Source for Women Office Administrator Meredith Little. “We are going to have pro-life speaker and comedian Gordon Douglas there, along with an awesome dinner.”

The deadline for RSVPs and sponsorship applications for the event is Friday, March 29. Contact banquet@firstsourceforwomen.org to RSVP or to become an event sponsor.

Those who wish to donate but cannot attend can contact First Source for Women at donate@firstsourceforwomen.org or mail checks to P.O. Box 1343. First Source for Women is located in Hanceville at 203 Commercial St. NE and in Cullman at 704 Second Ave. SW.
