Over 160 people attended the Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center Fund Raising Dinner at the Pillars Event Center in Taylorville Thursday night.
The evening included dinner, remarks by Loving Arms Executive Director Cathy Coker, and guest speaker Pastor and Christian comedian Gordon Douglas.
Coker reviewed the successes of the Center the past year and a half since the last Fund Raising Dinner in March of 2020 just before the COVID shutdown. She told attendees the Center, with locations in Taylorville and Pana, had over 50 individuals and their families appear in person or virtually at over 280 appointments and nearly 600 parenting and life skill lessons.
Coker added the Center's abstinence program reached over 250 students in 6 schools.
Douglas told Regional Radio News after the event, he was part of the event because of his support for similar ministries nationwide.
