Gala 2024 Guest Registration-to be opened:
CWC’s fundraising celebration Gala gives God the glory for saving almost 4,200 lives since 1992!
CWC continues to expand its outreach to -vulnerable women through our strategic location in a busy retail shopping center and our 24-hour inquiry website.
This is our biggest annual fundraising event which supports about one-third of our budget. The purpose of this event is to invite new potential partners, so they have the opportunity to hear client testimonies and learn how CWC ministers to women in unplanned pregnancies.
CWC 2024 Gala Guest Speaker, Scott Klusendorf
Scott Klusendorf is President of Life Training Institute and the author of The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture. Scott has taught pro-life apologetics at the graduate level at Biola University and Trinity Law School, and lectured at over 80 colleges and universities including Stanford, Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Johns Hopkins, MIT, and the U.S. Air Force Academy — to name a few.
Scott’s debate opponents have included Nadine Strossen (former President of the ACLU), attorney Edward Tabash (of the Council for Secular Humanism), attorney Kathryn Kolbert (who argued for abortion rights at the Supreme Court), and Katherine Kneer (President of Planned Parenthood California).
At the practical level, Scott helps pregnancy centers raise money to assist women facing unplanned pregnancies. The money raised helps women with shelter, baby clothes, parenting classes, and medical care.
Scott is a graduate of UCLA and holds a Master’s degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. He and his wife Stephanie have been married since 1985 and they have 4 children.
