Mark your calendars now for Right to Life of Kern County’s sixth annual Champions for Life dinner featuring Star Parker, nationally syndicated columnist, author, and tireless advocate for life.
Champions for Life 2018 will be Thursday, November 8 at Olive Drive Church of the Nazarene, 6201 Fruitvale Ave. Doors open at 5:30.
Tickets are $75 and go on sale September 1.
Star Parker is founder and president of CARE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a public policy think tank that promotes market-based solutions to fighting poverty. Prior to Parker’s foray into the tumultuous world of public policy, she lived for seven years in the grip of government dependence and reckless life choices that resulted in four abortions. Then, after attending a church service with friends, she found a new life in Jesus Christ and put those choices behind her for good.
“Prior to receiving Christ, I got caught up in the lies of the left, including their lie about abortion,” Parker said in a CNS News interview. “I continued to go in and out of abortion clinic after clinic until, after the fourth time, I had a gut instinct way down deep inside that there must be something wrong with killing your offspring.”
Parker will have that and more to say at the Champions for Life dinner and auction. Funds raised at the dinner support RTLKC’s ongoing advocacy efforts, including pro-life training and outreach on local college campuses and advocacy efforts in Sacramento.
