Stephenville, Texas has been home to the Cross Timbers Pregnancy Care Center (CTPCC) and its annual fundraising Banquet for nearly 20 years. In that time, it has served as a Christian ministry to the women and children of the community, providing care, education, and assistance to those in need.
Each summer, the Center hosts their Banquet to help raise funds for their cause of preserving the value of human life by providing abortion alternatives, practical assistance, spreading general education and awareness throughout the community. This year’s Banquet at Lone Star Arena will be on August 17, 2013, and will feature A&E’s Duck Dynasty stars Jep and Jessica Robertson.
The year brought about a few changes for CTPCC, including a new Executive Director and a change in banquet format. Along with a slight change of scenery, plans for the Center’s banquet began. Executive Director Ashley Graves originated the idea of bringing in the Robertsons as guests for the event.
“After watching Duck Dynasty with my family, my husband saw many of the Robertson men on YouTube preaching,” Graves stated. “I immediately wondered if it would be possible for us to host them at our banquet.”
The idea received much positive feedback and was widely supported by the Center’s Board as well as the community.
“Not only did the event change, but we recognized the speakers would bring attention to the Cross Timbers Pregnancy Care Center more than ever before,” stated Lois Burr, President of the Board.
Once efforts were made towards contacting and scheduling the Robertsons to appear at the event, support and sponsorships came pouring in from local companies and businesses.
General admission tickets for the 19th Annual Cross Timbers Pregnancy Care Center Banquet are priced at $25 and are available at the Pregnancy Care Center and at Star Arms Gun Store. Table Sponsorships are available for $1000 for a table of 10 people. The event will take place at Lone Star Arena.
