The 21st annual Council for Life Celebrating Life Luncheon is almost sold out. God’s infinite faithfulness and blessing continue to amaze us as we commit — for the first time — to funding over $1 million to our record 28 beneficiaries who work joyfully to support LIFE!
We are ecstatic to announce that our speaker is actor Jim Caviezel who portrayed Jesus in The Passion of the Christ! Mr. Caviezel both affirms life with his words and lives out his beliefs of cherishing every life.
Since 2001, Council for Life has raised more than $10 million to fund 60 agencies in the Dallas/Fort Worth area doing life-saving work related to the complex issues that surround unplanned pregnancies. These agencies serve the most vulnerable in our community with compassionate care through Pregnancy Resource Centers, Abortion Pill Reversal, Adoption and Foster Care, Maternity Homes, Post-Abortion Support, Parenting and Life Skills Education, Youth and College Mentoring, Sexual Risk Avoidance and Targeted Media Outreach.
We are thrilled to honor Norma Hunt and Tavia and Clark Hunt as this year’s Luncheon Honorary Co-Chairs. We are immensely grateful to them for their faithful, generous support of Council for Life and unwavering, bold stand for Life.
The Hunt family is known for faith, family, and football, and they have been members and leaders of Council for Life for decades. Norma Hunt served as Council for Life’s Honorary Chair in 2004 and has long served on CFL’s Advisory Board. She is the wife of the late sports pioneer Lamar Hunt – founder of the American Football League and the Kansas City Chiefs – and she is often referred to as the First Lady of Football. She has attended every Super Bowl.
Tavia and Clark Hunt continue their family’s legacy in sports and in philanthropy. Tavia has served on the Council for Life Board and has served as the Luncheon Chair as well as co-chaired the Men’s Breakfast with Clark. They are involved in a number of other Christ-centered initiatives, including Focus on the Family, Athletes in Action, and Kids Across America.
Billye Turner and Kelli Karlow — philanthropic leaders in our community dedicated to the cause of Life — are our outstanding Luncheon Co-Chairs.
