Each year, our annual in-person fundraising banquet generates more than 30% of our annual financial resources. Due to COVID-19 this year, we have prayed and discerned that it's best to host our 2020 Banquet online. We pray that you will join us from home on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 7 PM ET. Our online banquet will be unique this year, so you won't want to miss it!
By registering to attend this free online event, MiraVia is able to continue to meet the needs of mothers and their children in this unprecedented time of uncertainty. You will have an even greater understanding of how your donation helps young mothers and their children every day.
Thank you so much for continued support of MiraVia and providing the path for so many young mothers to choose life. God bless!
HOST A VIEWING PARTY AT HOME!
We encourage you to host "viewing parties" at your homes with friends, family and neighbors and make our banquet night a beautiful evening of fellowship and fun! The event will be unique, and you won’t want to miss it.
