We have had several successful fundraising events thanks to our devoted staff, faithful volunteers and generous people
everywhere. We have made several connections with people and organizations and have been able to partner with others who have the same passion and goals – helping women, babies, children and families. We are thrilled and grateful for every connection we’ve made over the years. We’re thankful that you have shown an interest in the foundation as well.
Our spaghetti dinners have built a reputation for being a fun, family-friendly event. We offer a delicious spaghetti dinner with
an Old World Recipe homemade sauce and if that isn’t enough to bring you out we have an amazing selection of raffle prizes, 50/50 drawing, door prizes, a live DJ, and balloon animals. It’s a time for awesome fellowship, meeting new friends, and supporting a great cause. Look for our spaghetti dinner every fall.
We’ve been able to distribute funds to various non-profits that we network with as well as to individuals in need. With the
funds we have raised we have provided clothing, high chairs, car seats, cribs, mattresses and bedding, and formula.
We continue to march forward in our goal of helping young women be who God has intended them to be, saving babies from
being aborted, helping young moms, and doing whatever else we can to promote quality of life. We can only do it with your help. Please consider joining us in our endeavors.
There are so many ways you can help us help others. From super easy ways like saving your Acme receipts or using
Goodsearch to super fun ways like attending a spaghetti dinner. Check out below all the ways you can help.

Workshop presented by Heather Waun
In college I had to take a writing course. I did not like writing. One of our assignments changed my perception of writing –
Memoir Writing. Memoirs are short “stories” about either one particular event of your life or about a period of time, all teaching you a valuable lesson and leaving a lasting impact. Immediately I thought of my friendship with Paige and how years later I still feel her all around me. So I began to write…and write….and write. And a funny thing happened. I LOVED writing it! Not only that, I felt this sense of peace come over me throughout the whole project. I want to share that with young women, especially young women going through a life changing event such as pregnancy. The power of writing about something that holds such an importance in your life will help overcome the fear of writing. I even put my memoir into book form, adding pictures, songs, quotes, etc. Whenever I am missing Paige, I can pull out this memoir that came from my heart and receive a little bit of comfort from it.
Finance and Budgeting
Workshop presented by Charlotte Pickenpaugh
For most of my career I have worked with finances. I have experience in accounting (accounts receivable and payable), payroll,
budgeting and balancing a check book. In addition, I was single mom for a short while and had to work with a tight budget to support my children on my own. In this workshop I can help young women create a workable budget and I can teach them how to balance a checkbook. (I also assist with the cooking workshop and have great tips on how to cook for a family on a tight budget)
Workshop presented by Michelle Villers
As women, most of us are excited about shopping but what makes the experience even better is when we don’t have to pay
full price. I give all kinds of handy tips and tricks to save money when grocery shopping and how and where to find coupons for all kinds of things. After this workshop you will look forward to your next grocery trip to see how much you can save.
Workshop presented by Michelle Villers
Journaling is one of the best things we can do for our self and our families. Yet, many people don’t journal because of either
fear and/or ignorance about journaling. Journaling helps us de-stress, it keeps our emotions in check, it serves as not only a reminder of our past but a roadmap for our future and it leaves a legacy for future generations. Often people think that journaling is hard work – that you have to be an English major to get it right and that’s the farthest thing from the truth. Anyone and everyone can and should journal and when you take this workshop you will have all the tools you need to start your journal.
Workshop presented by Christina Henry
Cooking for a family these days can be very expensive and one of the largest budget expenditures. However, there is a way to
cook economically and healthy with a little creativity. I will teach you how to make a meal on a budget. At my cooking workshop I will share my kitchen tips and advice such as the staple ingredients every kitchen should have, how to substitute ingredients and how to make something when “there’s nothing in the cupboard to make”. I will demonstrate cooking techniques and we will prepare one of my favorite recipes. (All recipe ingredients provided)
Workshop presented by Michelle Villers
