Women’s Resource Center Hosting Annual Fundraiser

Since 2003, the Women’s Resource Center in Gulfport has provided a place of refuge for women who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy.
This non-profit organization offers a variety of programs and resources, from free pregnancy tests to parenting classes. It’s even a place to get supplies the babies will need.
Tomorrow night, the organization will hold its annual fundraiser, Banquet for Life. There will be a silent auction and the 250 guests attending can donate towards this cause. Executive Director Tiffany Bell said, “Long term, a mom can come in when she’s four weeks pregnant and be with us up until that child turns two. We’re able to form a long lasting relationship with her. It’s not just ‘Hey, we’ll give you a pack of diapers and a free pregnancy test’, we really want to make an impact long term on her life.”
The Banquet for Life will be held tomorrow night at 5:00 p.m. at the Climb CDC Center in downtown Gulfport.
