Helping.  Sharing.  Enjoying.

Together, Supporting Moms

The St. Louis Friends of Birthright is an auxiliary organization within Birthright Counseling, St. Louis.

The Friends organize fund-raising events and promote the Birthright belief that it is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth and the right of every child to be born. We’re dedicated to furthering the work of Birthright Counseling, STL.

Our many and varied social activities fill the calendar year-round, providing our generous supporters an opportunity to come together and share in the success of Birthright.

We’d love to see you!

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 Weekend | Parishes

Night for Life Gala

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 Ballwinour 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.
