Several supporters of Hope Pregnancy Center gathered recently at Grace Community Church for Stand Up for Life: An Evening With Hope featuring comedian and author Mike G. Williams. The event was hosted by Martha Sitzler, Executive Director of Clarksville's Hope Pregnancy Center.
“Our event was called Stand Up for Life,” Sitzler said. “It was a comedy night fundraiser. We hosted a small reception before the show, and then we moved to the auditorium of the Hope Pregnancy Center after the show to talk about what we do at the Center. “We may laugh and cry and we invited people to partner with us in the work that we are doing.”
Sitzler anticipated a strong turnout for this year's event. “We are hoping to have close to 200 people here tonight,” Sitzler said. (the event has already happened; does Sitzler know how many attended the event?) “This is the first time for this particular event, but we have a fundraiser every spring. It's a great opportunity for members of the community to meet with us and learn about what we do.”
