The Bella Vita Pregnancy Resource Center will soon be holding their third annual reception and fundraiser, and this time, Director Suzanne Lange said the event will include a full buffet rather than the chocolate fondue foundation it had in previous years. Lange said the event, which will take place on May 9, will feature an MC from Shine.FM to lighten the atmosphere, and Lange will make a presentation on what the center has been up to in the last year with client statistics and other information.
Volunteers for the center will give testimonials as to how Bella Vita has helped them, and a team from Bible Baptist Church will do a lyrical sign language presentation to the song “How Great is Our God.”
Doors open at 6 p.m. for the event which begins at 6:30 p.m., and an auction will take place toward the end of the evening with an opportunity to donate to the center as well. This year, Lange said, they are focusing on growth.
The event raised roughly $22,000 last year, and this year she’s set a goal of $50,000 – the amount needed each year to keep the center viable for support and information.
