Clarksville's Hope Pregnancy Center recently held its annual fundraising event, an Evening With Hope, drawing more than 150 guests to Spring Creek Baptist Church for a night of dining, entertainment and testimony about its ongoing mission.

Pamella Dill talked about the evening, and the work being done by Hope Pregnancy Center.

“This is our annual event which helps us raise the money needed to allow us to continue providing free services to our clients,” Dill said. “Tonight's event helps us get new donors and possibly new volunteers, and it gives people a chance to learn more about what we do at the center.”

Hope Pregnancy Center offers a variety of services, including a Mom to Mom Mentoring Group, and an Earn as You Learn program, where young mothers can earn money to buy baby food, clothes, and formula at Josephine's Closet.

This year's event featured catering by Nicoletta's, and entertainment by featured speaker Mike G. Williams.

“Mike is a comedian,” Dill said. “He will perform his show, but he also has a wonderful testimony that is connected to pregnancy centers. So, he will also share his message with our audience tonight.”
