First Resort Charity Event Draws 1200 Supporters


Redwood City, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2013 -- The 29th Annual Spring Fundraiser for First Resort Medical and Counseling Clinics was held at the Hyatt Regency on Friday May 31st. More than 1200 donors and friends of the charity filled the Grand Peninsula Ballroom to celebrate the work that this non-profit agency does in the San Francisco Bay area to counsel, support and encourage women and men in unplanned pregnancies. First Resort is a Licensed Pregnancy Counseling Women’s Health Clinic whose services are fully funded by donations, and are provided free to their clients.

Maria Martinez-Mont, Director of Communications for First Resort said that this event is a way for supporters to come together for an evening and hear how women are finding hope, help and strength through First Resort’s programs. “At each of our three clinics, we have made it our mission to empower women in unplanned pregnancies to make fully informed decisions in line with their own beliefs and values, and to stand with them in affirming their choices,” she said.

Guest speaker was Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy (2010), and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery (2006). Guest were inspired and energized to continue to support the good work that First Resort does in their communities.
