WINONA LAKE — On April 25, Heartline Pregnancy Center hosted its annual Gathering of Hope Banquet at the Winona Heritage Room in Winona Lake. More than 200 guests gathered to raise more than $40,000 to support Heartline’s services to the community.
“Thanks to all who attended and gave, we were able to raise an amount that will significantly impact what Heartline is able to do in 2019,” said Alyx Bates, Heartline’s director of operations. “We’re so grateful for the people in the community who believe in our mission.”
The evening included the showing of the documentary, “I Lived on Parker Avenue,” followed by the birth mother from the documentary, Melissa Coles, sharing a little more of her story. Alan Alderfer served as the emcee for the evening, and the program included an update on what Heartline is doing in Kosciusko County.
Those still wishing to make donations to Heartline can do so by calling (574) 267-5110 or by giving online at www.heartlinepregnancycenter.org/donate.
Heartline is dedicated to combating generational and situational poverty through a variety of programs, working to empower and equip men and women in the community who are involved with an unplanned pregnancy.
