BRC hosts fundraiser for local pregnancy center
On Saturday, Aug. 4, the Buckingham Republican Committee (BRC) hosted a fundraiser to raise money and support for the Buckingham branch of the Pregnancy Support Center of Southside Virginia. Over $4,000 was raised for the center. State Senator Mark Peake attended the event and spoke on the need to stand up for the lives of the unborn. Client Services Director for the center, Karen Caldwell, also spoke on the importance of pregnancy centers and how they help expectant mothers and provide an option contrary to abortion. The heavily attended event brought members of the community together at Ellis Acres Park for an evening of free food, live music by Carl Burmaster and door prizes. The Pregnancy Support Center provides free resources, care and education for expectant mothers. Pictured are, from left, Karen Caldwell and Dylan Slaughter.
