Upcoming Life Network Events

Gala & Silent Auction

38th Annual Gala & Silent Auction – Thursday, September 30th and Friday, October 1st, 2021

Join us as we celebrate the life-giving and life-saving ministry of Life Network at the 38th Annual Life Gala & Silent Auction! This is an opportunity to hear what the Lord is accomplishing– and to financially support the ministry of Life Network. Our Gala and Silent Auction is an important fundraising event that allows us to continue to provide our services for free to ever 15,000 clients annually. We are pleased to return to offering this celebratory event at Hotel Eleganté over two evenings, Thursday, September 30th and Friday, October 1st. 

Our special guest and keynote speaker will be Benjamin Watson. Ben played 16 seasons in the NFL, earning a championship ring with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. However, one of his greatest passions in life is to protect the lives of the most defenseless. As one of the most outspoken pro-life voices in media, Watson and his wife Kirsten devote their time and money to assist pregnancy resource centers. He’s also addressed the March for Life, which takes place annually in Washington, D.C. This year, Watson starred and co-produced Divided Hearts of America, a moving pro-life film on which he partnered with pro-life advocates such as Alveda King, Ben Carson and Abby Johnson. Watson and his wife are also founders of One More, a non-profit dedicated to impacting the lives of those in need with enrichment opportunities and education. Benjamin is also the author of two books, Under Our Skin and The New Dad’s Playbook.

 

We are seeking 100 ministry friends to sponsor tables at this year’s Gala. As one committed to valuing life and seeing lives transformed in our community, this is your opportunity to expand your pro-life impact by underwriting a table and inviting those who share your passion for valuing life. As a table sponsor, you’ll invite guests willing to financially come alongside Life Network that night to help us impact thousands of lives in Colorado Springs in the year ahead. Your underwriting enables your guests’ donations to be spent directly on ministry needs as you help cover the cost of the event. It’s a great way to introduce friends and family to Life Network.

Your gift is tax-deductible. In addition, if you respond by August 13th, you will receive advertising space in our Gala program. If you wish to only help underwrite the costs of the table, we will gladly fill the table for you.

Please review the sponsorship levels below to choose the one that works best for you. For questions and to sponsor a table, contact Events Coordinator Alyssa Dwire at adwire@elifenetwork.com, 719-355-1183 or by clicking the button below.

Walk for Life

2021 Walk for Life – Saturday, June 5th, Memorial Park

This year’s 2021 Walk for Life was held on Saturday, June 5th at Memorial Park! After a unique Virtual Walk for Life in 2020, it was such a joy to join with our community and raise funds to value life in Colorado Springs again. Your support made this year’s Walk for Life our most successful Walk ever: we met our fundraising goal of $430,000 going into Walk Day and continue to exceed this amount! We will have a final total in the coming weeks. In other new records for our ministry, we had over 2,000 people in attendance at Memorial Park with more across Colorado Springs, and 1,000 registered walkers and runners! Thank you to our walkers, runners, sponsors, volunteers, vendors and more for making this amazing day possible and making a difference in Colorado Springs, one life at a time! 

As you think ahead to next year’s Walk for Life, consider connecting your church community with Life Network and the Walk for Life by serving as an Ambassador! Not sure if your church already has an Ambassador? Reach out to our Events Coordinator, Alyssa Dwire, at adwire@elifenetwork.com
