Kankakee Banquet 2024


Join us for an evening of celebration as we remember the miraculous moments of “today” — moments we can proclaim the goodness of God as He has moved in the lives of the women and families served through the Pregnancy Resource Center or our various counseling ministries in 2024. As always, our banquet will also be a great opportunity to share with you the vision God has placed on our hearts for the future of Living Alternatives.

The doors will open at 6:00 pm in the banquet hall for a time of fellowship with guests, volunteers, and staff of the Pregnancy Resource Center. Dinner will be provided. The celebration will begin at 6:30 pm where we will have a ministry update and hear from our guest speaker, TBA.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Keynote Speakers — Julie & Derrick Tennant

Julie has Down Syndrome, a condition caused by an “extra” chromosome. Her grampa said it wasn’t extra, but everyone else is MISSING it. He called it The LOVE Chromosome. We think you’ll agree that Julie is a very wise and insightful person after hearing her story at this year’s banquet! Derrick Tennant, a gifted athlete, was progressing in sports when one evening he laid down but did not wake up for three days. Learning to better demonstrate love in the midst of difficulty was essential to Derrick’s survival and vitality.

2024 Underwriting & Event Sponsor Opportunities

Each year, we build a team of Underwriters and Event Sponsors to completely pay for the event expenses and get us started towards our banquet goal. This enables all of the donations and pledges given the night of the celebration to go directly towards the operating expenses of this ministry over the next year.

Becoming an Underwriter or Event sponsor allows your donation to be multiplied, enabling us to invite prospective donors to the celebration at no cost. Your gift will be leveraged to inspire others to give generously. To show our appreciation, Underwriters and Event Sponsors (formerly Table Sponsors) will receive an invitation to a VIP event prior to the celebration, a premium table with 10 seats reserved for you and your guests, and be listed as sponsors during the evening. Responses must be mailed before June 25 to be listed on the invitation and submitted no later than September 5 to be included in the program.

Will you partner with us this year? Your investment will ensure the success of the mission and future of Living Alternatives. Sponsorship levels are below for your consideration. If interested, please contact us at [email protected].
