The dinner honored CFL 2020 Luncheon Beneficiaries , Honorary Chairs Lisa and Clay Cooley , and the Host Committee and featured speaker Benjamin Watson — Super Bowl AND pro-life champion ! Our benefactors rose to the challenge enabling us to fully fund all 19 agencies . To God be the Glory !!
While our Celebrating Life Luncheon is a high point each year , we also celebrated with Advocates via hybrid events as in person was not an option . President-Elect Lee Anne Morris held a dynamic Strategic Planning meeting in late September , setting our eyes to 2021 and celebrating CFL ’ s 20th Anniversary . The Advisory Board Virtual Coffee & Conversation held in mid- October was preceded by the delivery of beautiful gift baskets of goodies to each Advisory Board member . In November , a group of pastors and some beneficiary representatives met for lunch at Terry Black ’ s Barbecue to discuss Unplanned Pregnancies and the Church . Next , our North Texas Chairs got creative in introducing CFL to North Dallas friends with a front porch delivery providing lovely coffee cup shaped cookies and information about CFL and how to become an Advocate for Life .
Our Young Leaders for Life ( YLFL ), Men Stand for Life and Waco Affiliate all have rescheduled events for 2021 !
As we enter 2021 , we aim to celebrate having 1000 + Advocates . As an Advocate for Life , we are UNITED FOR LIFE .
As I complete my second year as President , I am sincerely grateful for this opportunity to serve , to champion the cause close to God ’ s heart — the life of each person , fashioned in His image . Thank you to the many who have served with me — the staff and the 2019 and 2020 Board of Directors . You have served with excellence , passion and mercy as we continue to make abortion unthinkable by changing hearts and minds .
This year is going to be SPECIAL as we celebrate our 20th year ! BIG plans are already being made , and I can ’ t wait to see you there !!
Blessings - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year United for Life , Cathy Sisk 2019 / 2020 Council for Life President
