Sarah Palin to Speak at Pregnancy Resource Center Fundraiser

In the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, the only stops hopeful Commanders-in-Chief are likely to make seem to be piggy-bank fundraisers at assorted mansions in Park City.

But have no fear: Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice-presidential nominee, is swinging by Salt Lake City Oct. 2 for the Pregnancy Resource Center’s Banquet for Life fundraiser at the Grand American Hotel.

“We are delighted to have Governor Palin as our guest speaker this year,” said Jim Kerr, the resource center’s executive director, in a news release. “We know that her message will be both touching and motivating for all who attend.”

The Pregnancy Resource Center, according to its website, is affiliated with the Life Care Center of Utah. Its mission statement says it is a "Christ-centered ministry that works to meet the comprehensive needs to those unprepared for pregnancy, heal lives traumatized by abortion and challenge people to embrace a Biblical view of sexuality and the sanctity of human life.”

Tickets to the dinner are $100. But for $5,000, donors receive a table for 10 at the banquet—including a meet-and-greet with Palin.
