The Foothills Pregnancy Resource Center is holding its annual fundraiser this weekend in Monrovia’s Library Park located at 100 S Myrtle Avenue at the northern end of Old Town.
The event will start at 8AM in the park with a Continental Breakfast sponsored by the First Christian Church Shilo Ladies Group. The events will end at 2 PM.
Part of the fun and excitement will be the “Block-a-thon” where you can sponsor a walker around library park at 50cents a lap (dang..keyboards don’t have cent signs any more???). Get your strollers out and start walking if you are so inclined.
This event will have a kids canrival, a dance contest and 2 Christian Rock Bands to keep you entertained. All sorts of Kid Carnival stuff too keep them entertained. This folksy event will also have several contests like the Mother/Daughter and Father/Son look alike contest.
This event is also easy on the pocket book. According to Janie Duncan, one of the organizers most of its 50 cents or a $1 as “I believe keep it under a buck and I can sell a million of them”.
The Foothills Pregnancy Resource Center is a Pro-life Organization providing alternatives to San Gabriel Valley and adjacent LA Metro area women who for cultural, religous or other reasons can’t use abortion as a method to solve an unplanned pregnancy. This registered Clinic has licensed staff, a full time nurse, and an ultrasound machine. They offer Pregnancy Testing, Post-Abortion Counseling, Community, Medical and Legal Referrals, and material assistance for Mother and Baby.
They are always looking for donations of cribs, diapers, formula and other baby items in good condition. The center is a place where mothers who choose to keep their babies can get the help they need throughout their pregnancy and delivery. On Sat. you can meet some of the mothers and the babies that have been helped by them.
