Hope Clinic for Women hosts annual 'Inspiring Hope' Gala

FALLBROOK – Hope Clinic for Women will host its 18th annual "Inspiring Hope" Gala, Friday, March 17, at 6 p.m., at Zion Lutheran Church, 1405 E. Fallbrook St. This year's speaker, former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino, will share his unique perspective about why a physician who has been trained to give life would take it away.

Levatino will discuss what it was like to perform abortions and the toll it took on his family until a personal tragedy occurred. Before his involvement in the pro-life movement, Levatino performed over 1,200 both first and second-trimester abortions as part of his OB-GYN practice in upstate New York.

He pulls back the veil of confidentiality about family relationships and the consequences of abortion on the families of the physicians who perform them stating that "The tragedy of abortion has a ripple effect which reaches far beyond the woman and her unborn child and touches the hearts and souls of everyone, including the physicians and families." Levatino has testified about the dangers of abortion before Congress.

"Inspiring Hope" is HCW's most important fundraiser of the year where guests can provide a one-time gift or offer a pledge to support them monthly the night of the Gala. The fundraising goal this year is $100,000 where funds raised will strengthen HCW's ability to deliver more medical and pregnancy services to more women, more days of the week.

HCW appreciates sponsorships for the Gala allowing all funds raised the night of the Gala to go directly to Clinic operations caring for HCW's young families, and in 2023 new Fatherhood programming complimenting the excellent no cost women's program that has benefited the Fallbrook community for over 23 years.

Guests will enjoy a sit-down dinner at the event that is catered by Trupiano's Italian Bistro and dessert by Bakin' it Up. Gala sponsors of $500 or more may host eight complimentary guests at their reserved tables.

The Gala is free to all, but registration is required. HCW anticipates seats to go quickly so HCW asked that guests register early online at https://www.hopefallbrook.com/Get-Involved/Events, by mail or by calling Melinda Zimmerman at 760-728-4105, ext 11.
