Sacramento Life Center’s Annual Salute to Life Dinner and Auction
Event raises funds for free medical services, counseling for pregnant women and teens
More than 600 local residents will celebrate the Sacramento Life Center’s free medical care, counseling and education for pregnant women and teens at the organization’s annual fundraising dinner on November 9. The Salute to Life Dinner and Auction will begin at 5 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom in Sacramento and will include a gourmet dinner, auction, raffle and stories of people who have received help from the Sacramento Life Center.
“This is an inspirational event where guests can witness the life-changing journeys our clients have taken while also enjoying the excitement of a live auction and gourmet dinner,” said Marie Leatherby, executive director. “This year, funding will help us roll out our second Mobile Medical Clinic so we can help even more women and teens receive the services they need.”
Last year’s event raised more than $400,000 through ticket sales, auction bids and sponsorships. For more information about sponsorships or to purchase tickets: www.saclife.org .
