Our Fundraising Events
Membership Brunch & Baby Shower
The Friends of Birthright gather every February to kick off another year of major fundraising for Birthright Counseling St. Louis.
Run for Life & Learning
June | Creve Coeur Lake Park
Held in June each year at Creve Coeur Lake Park, proceeds from the run go to the Friends of Birthright Scholarship Program.
The program funds the education of Birthright clients in financial need whose plans are affected by an unplanned pregnancy.
Spring | Parishes
The Friends’ Spring Flings are Parish sponsored events to promote awareness of Birthright Counseling St. Louis and The Friends of Birthright.
These events vary from a casual coffee, to a lovely luncheon, to an evening happy hour. Members of participating parishes choose a date and type of event that fits their needs. Usually taking place in the Spring, these events are fun and informative.
Mother's Day Rose Sale
Mother’s Day Weekend | Parishes
Numerous parishes in the St. Louis area sponsor a Mother’s Day Rose Sale in honor of Mothers Day.
Organized by the Friends of Birthright, all proceeds are donated to Birthright Counseling St. Louis.
Night for Life 2020
September 7th – September 17th|
The Friends of Birthright Annual Night for Life Gala shifted to a virtual event this year. We realized that it was the only sure way to keep everyone safe.
In place of the Gala, we premiered a video series on our website and social media sites. On September 12th a video was released of our 2020 Hartnett Award presentation to Carole McClurken for her many years of support and dedication to Birthright. The video contains a virtual program booklet recognizing our donors and Holy Infant Catholic Church in Ballwin, our sponsoring parish.
The Night for Life is the Friend’s biggest fundraiser of the year. We will dance again next September as we celebrate 50 years of Birthright in St. Louis.
