EASTCHETER, Ny., Mar. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pro-life U.S. Senator Sam Brownback, and Larry Kudlow, CNBC host, will speak at the Children First Foundation's "Gala Concert for Adoption" at Lincoln Center on Wednesday evening, April 11, 2007, at 6:30pm.
CFF's "Gala Concert for Adoption" is part of a national effort to raise greater awareness about the important "Safe Haven Laws" that have been enacted in 47 states during the month of April so that, as stated by Tim Jaccard, "not one single baby is ever thrown in the garbage pail again."
Senator Brownback, the Gala's keynote speaker, is an adoptive parent and a congressional leader who understands the importance of promoting adoption, family values and a Culture of Life in our nation and the world. Larry Kudlow, the benefit's emcee, is a renowned economist, host of CNBC's "Kudlow & Company" and a strong advocate of conservative values in the media.
The Children First Foundation's "Gala Concert for Adoption" will begin at 6:30 pm with a New York Philharmonic performance of the Shostakovitch Violin Concerto No. 1 followed by a Post-Concert Reception on the Grand Promenade at 8:00 p.m. CFF will honor Tim and Aedan Jaccard of the AMT Children of Hope "Safe Haven" Program and six Pregnancy Centers located in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
"The Gala's important goal," says Dr. Elizabeth Rex, CFF's President and Co-Founder, "is to help fund these outstanding organizations that generously provide desperate women with the financial and moral support they so often need in order to choose life and consider adoption for unwanted pregnancies or unwanted newborns." Charles Rex, a CFF Director and Co-Founder, is a concert violinist with the New York Philharmonic and helped organize CFF's festive fundraiser at Lincoln Center.
CFF's Benefit Committee includes leaders of the New York State Right to Life Committee, the Connecticut Right to Life Committee, the New Jersey Family Policy Council and the Family Institute of Connecticut, organizations that support CFF's efforts to promote Adoption and Safe Havens as positive, compassionate and life-saving choices that deserve greater public understanding, appreciation and support.
Benefit Tickets begin at $250 and must be purchased in advance. Please call The Children First Foundation toll-free at 1-877-386-3236 or visit CFF's website at www.fund-adoption.org. Donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible.
