Nebraskans United for life would like to thank everyone that participated in one way or another in our 2010 Annual Dinner for Life, which took place Friday, January 15th. The dinner and silent auction were a success.
We opened with Bishop Miloni’s beautiful invocation followed by awards, speakers, and an auction.
Every year, Nebraskans United for Life gives an award to a person that has proven to be a driving force in the pro-life movement; someone who has never given up, whose efforts to protect life have come first. This year, NUFL gave two awards to two wonderful pro-lifers Mary Adam and Georgia C Able, and we would like to congratulate them once more for being part of our cause.
We were proud to present Julie Marr, who told us her powerful story about rape, conceiving a son and a beautiful outcome as she gave her baby up for adoption. Julie is in the process of writing a book about her experience.
Our keynote speaker was Abby Johnson, former manager of Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. She spoke about her change of heart, and the realization that abortion needs to be stopped.
In addition to our many wonderful members, volunteers, and guests, the following personalities also came to support our event:
Greg Schleppenbach Bishops’ Pastoral Plan for Pro Life Activities
Patrick McPherson(CHIP board of Directors)
John Sieler (Candidate for MUD),
Senator Pete Pirsch, District 4.
Mayor Hal Daub,
Jim Flowers, Chief Meteorologist for WOWT
Don Stenberg, Candidate for State Treasurer.
Congressman Lee Terry,
John Lillis, Candidate for legislature and NUFL’s P.A.C. Chairman.
Tim Lonergan, District 3 candidate
We were blessed with the help from the Kukala family for facilitating filming equipment and a portable screen, and the wonderful Denis and Bill, who volunteered their time and efforts recoding the events of the night.
We would life to thank everyone that participated once more, we hope to see you again next year, and of course, in order for us to continue to offer our services such as counseling, free pregnancy tests, material assistance (diapers, cribs, and much more) we will continue to need the support of our community, and volunteers.
