The Bella Vita Pregnancy Resource Center’s First Annual Fundraising reception will be held tonight at 6:30 p.m. CT at the Knox Community Center. A ribbon cutting for the center was held last week, and Executive Director Suzanne Lange said tonight’s affair will be to raise funding for the operating expenses.
“Seeing and Believing” is the theme for the evening. Esther Upham, a noted musician, will present a selection, “For Unto Us.”
Freelance artist, Brittany Beauchamp, will auction the portrait, “Mother and Bella”. A handcrafted chair will be auctioned by Larry and Debbie Chizum. The pledge challenge will be conducted by Dr. Thomas Browne, and an auction will be conducted by Mr. Jim Masterson.
Mrs. Rebecca Bailey, Abstinence Educator, will also speak as will Suzanne Lange. WKVI’s Ted Hayes is the Master of Ceremonies. The welcome will be given by Rhonda Adcock, Chairwoman of Bella Vita.
