The 2019 Ball for Life was a smashing success!
The evening began with a Mass for Life at St Patrick’s Cathedral at 5:00 after which everyone headed to The Racquet & Tennis Club. After posing on the red carpet for the Good Counsel paparazzi– our guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvre and perused the always popular jewelry auction.
After a delicious dinner, it was time to honor Dr. Anne Nolte, Co-Founder of the Gianna Center for Women’s Health and Fertility, who spoke about Advocating for Life, in Word and Deed.
The heart and highlight of the evening, however, was when Exodus Mom, Abigail, told the story of her journey to Good Counsel, while those in the audience hung on her every word.
In case you missed it, you can watch Abigail’s speech below.
