(LifeSiteNews) — LifeSite is excited to announce the addition of a new VIP attendee at our 25th Anniversary Gala in Naples, Florida, on Wednesday, August 17.
Pro-life hero Joan Andrews Bell will now be among the several VIP attendees at the Gala. Ticket purchases can be securely made by clicking here. Sponsorships are also available. Click here to visit our Gala website for more information.
Bell was recently released from two weeks of jail over trespassing charges related to a Red Rose Rescue at the Alexandria Women’s Center in Northern Virginia, and LifeSite was on the ground to get her reaction.
Other notable Gala attendees who have confirmed their attendance include Fathers James Altman and Frank Pavone, Gala emcee and pro-life filmmaker Jason Jones, medical freedom advocates Dr. Peter McCullough and John Leake, and Mother Miriam. Pro-life leader Reggie Littlejohn, pro-life lawyer Royce Hood, and Faith & Reason co-host Liz Yore will attend as well.
Dr. Simone Gold, previously listed as a VIP speaker, will unfortunately not be in attendance. Click here for more information.
The Gala will take place on Wednesday, August 17th at the Naples Grande Beach Resort, a four-star luxury hotel overlooking the spectacular Gulf of Mexico. Tickets are now on sale at the LifeSiteNews Gala website. Click here to securely purchase your tickets. Click here if you’d like to sponsor the event.
Award-winning film star and devout Catholic Jim Caviezel will be our headline speaker. Caviezel is most well-known for his portrayal of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of Christ.
Caviezel joins a list of several speakers set to appear, which will also include LifeSite co-founders Steve Jalsevac and John-Henry Westen. Many LifeSite supporters, corporate sponsors, current staff, and prominent persons we’ve reported on previously will be in attendance.
Most LifeSite personalities will be present for you to meet. Tickets can be purchased for $250 each. Ticket purchases can be securely made by clicking here. Sponsorships are also available. Click here to visit our Gala website for more information.
The schedule of events is as follows: 5:00 p.m. VIP Reception, 6:00 p.m. Cocktail Reception, 7:00 p.m. Welcome, 7:30 p.m. Dinner, 8:30 p.m. Formal Program and Keynote Speaker Address.
If you would like to attend the 5:00 p.m. VIP Reception, you will need to purchase a $100 ticket as well. This event is separate from the 6:00 p.m. Cocktail Reception that is automatically included in your general admission ticket. Click here to purchase your VIP Reception ticket.
As for unvaccinated readers and LifeSite staff from outside the U.S. wanting to attend the Gala, we are hoping and praying that the current restrictions on travel into the U.S. from other nations might be lifted during the summer. That is normally when COVID infections are least likely to be an issue. LifeSite shares the frustration of non-American readers who may not be able to travel to the Gala. Many of our staff are in the same position.
There are legal challenges that may also facilitate removal of the restrictions. If it does not happen, LifeSite is considering a live-streaming option of the event for those from outside the U.S.
LifeSite is not going to let Joe Biden or Justin Trudeau’s COVID policies affect this celebration of a wonderful milestone in LifeSite’s history and will do whatever is required to ensure a successful event.
LifeSite looks forward to welcoming you in beautiful Naples, Florida!
