All Dressed Up

Tonight I put up my hair, and dressed in a suit, and chauffered my mom and a friend to a fundraising banquet for the First Choice Pregnancy Services Center in Las Vegas.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, and the Opening Prayer was prayed by a Priest who is Kevin's spiritual advisor. So I had fun watching and listening to these people in action.

Most of all, I loved hearing that this place has a 75% save rate for the babies at-risk to abortion who come into the clinic.

I'm also proud that my mom volunteers at the Center, and that is a testimony of God's goodness, creativity, and ability to amaze me.

After dinner (!) they did an ultrasound right there in the Las Vegas Hotel/Casino banquet room. That's just not something that happens at your run-of-the-mill banquet. Guess this isn't your run-of-the-mill cause.

How fun! You had me at "all dressed up". I can't remember the last time I attended a formal event. The last family wedding I guess. Sounds like it was a great night, I'm so glad you got to go.
