Pennsylvanians for Human Life will host its annual Celebrate Life Banquet on Sunday, Feb. 25 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Springfield Country Club (Route 320, Springfield).
This year’s keynote speaker this year is journalist and filmmaker Ann McElhinney. With her husband Phelim McAleer, McElhinney wrote and produced two films on Philadelphia-based abortionist Kermit Gosnell: “Gosnell, The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer” and “Gosnell: The Movie.”
At the event, the Margaret Hoffner Award will be presented to Jim Wood, a narcotics investigator in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Dangerous Drug Offenders Unit. Wood, a graduate of Archbishop Carroll High School, led the investigation into Gosnell’s activities, which included illegal distribution of prescription drugs in addition to first-degree murder.
Tickets are $75 for adults (table of ten $700) and $35 for students (table of ten $350).
For information, call (610) 696-0780 or (484) 354-7121.
