For the sixth consecutive year, the Msgr. J.M. Hanson Council 5038 Knights of Columbus in Ankeny is sponsoring a Raffle for Life. This raffle benefits the Gabriel Project, a parish-based, crisis pregnancy program.
In the past 12 months, Gabriel Project volunteers have assisted 57 pregnant women and 36 babies have been born; 20 women are currently being assisted by Gabriel Project volunteers. The Gabriel Project exists totally on the efforts of volunteers. There is no paid staff and all money raised through the Raffle for Life goes towards assisting young pregnant women.
Raffle tickets are $50 each with a maximum of 200 to be sold. Prizes include a $1,000 Travel Gift Certificate. Tickets will be sold until 4 November 2012. To purchase a raffle ticket, please send an email to KofC@OLIH.org and a Brother Knight will be in touch with you.
As always, Msgr. J.M. Hanson Council 5038 encourages all to Pray for a Culture of Life.
