Dinner for Life is our largest fundraiser and provides the critical dollars required to support LifeHouse’s programs and services throughout the coming year. At the event last year, guests raised almost $200,000. Through this support, LifeHouse has been able to serve 77 women, and 43 healthy babies have been born since opening on December 27, 2013.
