GLA Life at the Party Gala Re-Cap

Thank you so much to those of you who made it out this last Saturday to our first annual Life at the Party. We had a fantastic night of fellowship and celebration.

The evening started with the VIP reception where Lt. Governor Casey Cagle was awarded the Champion for Life award. We also honored over 20 federal and state legislators with our “Advocate for Life” award.

After dinner was served, awards were presented. Renee Unterman was given the State Senator of the Year for her work on SB 308. Joyce Chandler was presented with State Representative of the Year for carrying HB 555. Congressman Doug Collins was given Federal Legislator of the Year for his 100% pro-life voting record in Washington. Lastly, Mary Boyert was given the Life Legacy Award for her life-long dedication to the pro-life cause.

Keynote Speaker, movie director and producer, Alex Kendrick spoke at length about his experience creating faith-based movies and how a little bit of faith can go a long way.

ATLANTA- Georgia Life Alliance stands on the shoulders of many who came before us. Today we mourn the passing of a woman who was fearless in her efforts to give a voice to the voiceless of our culture, especially unborn children. Phyllis Schlafly is one of those advocates whose tireless work trained thousands of men and women across the country to speak up for the unborn and promote legislation to protect them.

She’s influenced generations of pro-life women with her speaking on college campuses across the country, producing her weekly radio program, The Phyllis Schlafy Report and the Education Reporter, all aimed to educate and equip her followers to be effective advocates of sound policy on many issues at a state and feral level. Founding Eagle Forum in 1968, her State Leaders have emulated her example and continue to support her mission and philosophy at state capitols across the country.

In 1984, Phyllis Schlafly joined former Congressman Henry Hyde as a Delegate of the Platform Committee to lead the effort to adopt the prolife language of the Dallas Convention: “The unborn child has a fundamental, individual right to life which cannot be infringed….” Every four years, from that time on, Phyllis and her Eagles threw a party to remind National Delegates of the rights of the unborn – labeling her efforts “The Life of the Party” – from which we drew to begin our first annual “Life at the Party” Gala.

We extend our condolences to her family and close friends, especially her six children, 16 grand-children and six great-grand-children.

Georgia Life Alliance is the Georgia affiliate of National Right to Life.
