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.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
