Be the Village!

About the Event

Community Center for Life (CCL) is 501(c)(3) Christian organization dedicated to walking alongside mothers and families facing unintended pregnancies and saving the life of the unborn.  

Since 1995, CCL has served thousands of pregnant moms and families experiencing unintended pregnancies. As our community builds up the culture of life with the reversal of Roe v. Wade, CCL has expanded its 100% free programs and services that provide care for the vulnerable moms and families not only during the pregnancy but also throughout the first four years of the child’s life. We save lives through compassion and love. 

The gala is the annual event that raises vital funds for continuing our mission and celebrates the work God is doing through the organization. We invite you to the Spring Gala 2024 as we envision a community where no pregnant mom walks alone and every baby has a village for the mom. 

By sponsoring or donating toward this event, you can partner with us in saving lives through compassion and love and empowering women and families in crisis to confidently choose life.
