At the 5th Annual Benefit Dinner on November 11th, 2015, St. John Paul II Life Center hosted more than 800 guests at the Renaissance Hotel, raising an incredible over $240,000 to further St. JPII’s mission helping God’s children!
The Benefit Dinner featured Fr. Mike Schmitz as the keynote speaker. He reminded everyone that we all have choices to make, and if we let God shine through us in those choices, the world will be on fire. A special thanks also goes out to Fr. Mike Dolan for opening the evening in prayer and Fr. Mark Hamlet for the closing prayer.
Another special guest, First Lady of Texas Cecilia Abbott, accepted the “Dignity of Life” award for both her and Governor Abbott. The event could not have been a success without the amazing committee, sponsors, volunteers, board and staff who made the evening possible.
Save the date for next year’s benefit dinner on November 11, 2016 at the Hyatt featuring Bishop Mike Sis from the Diocese of San Angelo! We hope to see you there!
