What people are saying about Pat’s results for PRC and Adoption Agency Fund Raising Events:

“We were in awe of how Pat was able to speak directly to the audience of supporters on the difficult topic of abortion as if they were her closest friends.! Her speaking style is unassuming yet sophistated and delightfully witty.  Her experience and confidence combined with a powerful personal testimony resonated with all ages of attendees.   Her challenging appeal and message compelled our guests to give more than in any other fundraiser we’ve held before!” Our supporters are still talking about the banquet.  So many positive comments!  God was glorified and our goals were exceeded that evening for sure!

Claire Cheely – Executive Director, Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center, CA
