How do words like helpless, lost and hopeless turn into words like support, confidence, and healing? They do, with the resources and services of the Alternatives Pregnancy Center. The center lifts up an individual struggling with the fear, decision, and consequences of an unplanned pregnancy by providing possibly life saving services including counseling, prenatal care, pregnancy checkups and sonograms, as well as parenting classes and aftercare.
To help celebrate and continue their unmatched work in the community, Alternatives Pregnancy Center is having their “Catch a Falling Star- Annual Gala for Life“, on Sept. 24th, 2010 at 6:00 pm at the Sacramento Hyatt Regency Grand Ballroom. The event will include a wine tasting, dinner, a raffle of a brand new Jacuzzi, and a special appearance by a former Miss Sacramento. The live auction by David Sobon of David Sobon Auctions will help raise money to ensure these FREE services will continue. A few of the items up for bid include airplane rides for 4 to The Monterey Ritz Carlton and Napa for wine tasting Plus a Deluxe Spa Package with an overnight hotel stay in The Governor’s Suite at La Rivage, dinner at Scott’s Seafood and spa services at LaLe Spa. The Margie Ruiz Jazz Band will be providing a delightful ambience of live music throughout the night. The tickets for the event are $65.00 or $600 for a table of ten.
The Alternatives Pregnancy Center provides teen/parent education for prevention, medical support and honest, up-front information about pregnancy alternatives, as well as after-care and ongoing healing for women. The center’s services are unprecedented in the lives women and men facing the struggle of an unplanned pregnancy since the early 1980’s. Their medical clinic is fully licensed by the State of California and they offer their services at free or little cost to the parents in need, and the effects last a lifetime!
