Host a table or underwrite the event

As a primary source of funding, our annual banquet is critically important to the ministry of Life Matters Worldwide. We can’t do it without you. Please prayerfully consider joining us as a table host, underwriter, or both. 

Table Hosts: Each table seats 10 people. While there’s no cost to attend the banquet, we suggest a minimum donation of $30/person to cover the cost of the dinner and venue. As a table host, you will agree to fill those seats by inviting guests to attend the banquet. 

As you invite guests, please consider MC². M = Motivation. C = Capacity. Who, in your sphere of influence, are the motivated individuals with a passion for the sanctity of human life? Who has the capacity (the means, should the Lord lead) to support Life Matters Worldwide on a monthly, quarterly, or one-time basis?

If you’re ready to make a commitment to join us in our efforts, you can reserve your table(s) now!
