MARSHFIELD — On Oct. 1 The Hannah Center will host its annual Giving for Life Banquet and Auction at Hotel Marshfield. The theme of the evening is “Victory for a Lifetime,” a sports theme that is sure to inspire those in attendance.
The Hannah Center’s mission is to assist women in life crisis through compassion and guidance in a nurturing environment. The Giving for Life Banquet and Silent Auction is a celebration of this mission and those who embrace it.
“We see many parallels between success on the football field and the success that hurting women experience through The Hannah Center,” said Aimee Tippen from the board of directors. “That is why we are excited to host an evening of inspiration by special guests with sports backgrounds.”
Dale Ryman, sports director of NewsChannel 7, will emcee the evening. The keynote speaker is record-setting Green Bay Packers defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, who will share a message of overcoming difficulties in life along with his story of faith, family, and football.
There will be meet and greet time with Gbaja-Biamila starting at 5 p.m. The silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the banquet to follow.
“The Hannah Center provides hope and support to women in crisis and their children in the Marshfield area. During this year’s annual Giving for Life Banquet and Silent Auction we hope to increase our fundraising efforts by 10 oercent over last year,” said President of The Hannah Center’s Board of Directors Sue Church. “We are currently looking for event and table sponsors who share a heart and commitment to assist women and their children in crisis and would like to partner with us for this event.” All proceeds from the event will directly support The Hannah Center in its mission.
