The Ladies Auxiliary and Respect Life Committee were in charge of the Silent Auction/Raffle for the Pink and Blue Banquet for the McGivney Center of Hope and Healing. The annual fundraising banquet was held in August at the Belvedere, 1170 W. Devon Ave Elk Grove Village. Preparation for the auction began months in advance, as donations were obtained and baskets created by the ladies. Fifteen Ladies were on hand for the event, several Knights were also in attendance, and both groups had ads in the dinner program booklet to help support this worthy cause.

Father Michael J. McGivney Center of Hope and Healing is a 501c3 corporation which provides Grants to Homes in Illinois that empower women who choose LIFE.  The Homes they support are an extension of the work of Pregnancy Assistance Centers. Each woman is treated on an individual basis. Recognizing the talents of the human person, programs are designed to help each person to use their talents to achieve eventual self‐sufficiency to help themselves and their child. Residents are eighteen years of age or older, usually referred by one of the more than 300 Pregnancy Assistance Centers in the State of Illinois and of various racial/ethnic backgrounds.

Requests for funds to support this mission were over $250,000.  Last year they were able to award grants to five Homes for a total amount of $75,000.     As you can see they fell far short of what is needed to help these homes provide help to Women and Babies. For more information, or to contribute to their efforts, see the Father Michael J McGivney Center of Hope and Healing gofundme page: https://www.gofundme.com/2s2cm4s
