Brookfield, WI — On October 22, 2020, Pro-Life Wisconsin will host it’s 28th annual Love for Life Gala at the Brookfield Conference Center (325 S. Moorland Road, Brookfield). The event will celebrate the life saving work of Pro-Life Wisconsin and double down on efforts to end abortion once and for all.
The Love for Life Gala is open to the public and registrations will be taken here through October 5. Babies in arms, laps, or strollers are welcome and are free. Clergy are also free.
At this memorable dinner benefitting the educational and legislative efforts of Pro-Life Wisconsin, we will welcome special guest and keynote speaker, His Excellency Bishop Donald J. Hying. As our spiritual director and the Bishop of the Diocese of Madison, Bishop Hying is known throughout the state and world as a pro-life champion for his unwavering support of all human life. He brings his own profound perspective as he speaks of the sanctity of life, and most especially the preborn.
“I want to focus on this precious miracle as God has created us in his image and likeness,” Bishop Hying said. “If an unborn child could speak, wouldn’t they say, ‘Let me be born. Let me walk, dance, sing and play. Let me love God, know Jesus, pray and make my contribution to the world. Let me fall in love and know truth, beauty and goodness?’ All of life is sacred and that sacredness begins at the moment of conception. What a gift every human being is.”
We are elated to welcome Bishop Hying and gather together with pro-life Wisconsinites to partake in a marvelous evening celebrating the gift of life. Dan Miller, State Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, says, “Having Bishop Hying speak, hearkens to our early days when Pro-Life Wisconsin was known for bringing in local clergy to speak on life issues. We are just so happy he accepted our invitation to be our keynote speaker!”
During the program, Pro-Life Wisconsin will honor State Representative Joe Sanfelippo as Legislator of the Year and Marie Allen of the La Crosse Life League as Activist of the Year. In addition, Steve Karlen, 40 Days for Life Campaign Director, and his wife, Laura Karlen, will be honored as our chairpersons for the evening.
