Sarah speaking engagment in Joplin MO today

From the Joplin Globe

The former governor of Alaska and vice presidential nominee will speak at a fundraising event for the
LifeChoices Health Network at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, in Taylor Performing Arts Center at Missouri Southern State University.

LifeChoices is offering its supporters and partners the first seats, according to Rita Lawson, advancement

director. Any extra seats will be open to the public. LifeChoices should know how many of those seats would be available by the end of the week, Lawson said.

The public can check on available seating, starting Aug. 25, at on voices

There will be no charge for tickets, but because the event is a fundraiser there will be opportunities to make

Lawson said about a third of the organization’s budget comes from the annual fundraising event. The event also serves as an awareness opportunity.

“It’s also a fantastic way to get volunteers,” she said.

Palin will be talking about her experiences having a son with Down syndrome. She also will talk about why organizations such as LifeChoices are important to a community, Lawson said.

Palin served as governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009. In 2008, she was the vice presidential running mate for Republican presidential nominee John McCain. According to her biography on SarahPAC — her political action committee — she was the first female and youngest governor of Alaska.

The Fox News contributor also is the author of “Going Rogue: An American Life,” “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag,” and “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.” She was the host of a documentary series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” on TLC.
Jordynn Griffith, LifeChoices communication coordinator, said the talk isn’t meant to be a political event, but rather a time for Palin to share her experience.
“She’s more just sharing her personal family story,” she said.

Every year, the nonprofit clinic that focuses on sexual and prenatal health tries to bring in someone it believes has a story to share, Lawson said, and Palin fit that bill.

“I think she can well relate to individuals that we see here through the clinic,” Lawson said.

Previous guests at the fundraising event have been Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee.

Last year, the event drew more than 1,500 people for a dinner, with a waiting list of people who wanted to attend.
“We knew we needed to do something a little different this year,” Lawson said.

Yes Ms. Lawson it will be a little different this year.  Your keynote speaker is not a Christian but a drunken thug.


  1. Miss Priss will be in her element tonight no doubt.
    Go right ahead and tell your "story," Queenie, we
    ALL know it's a fable!

  2. According to the Pee Pond, it's a sold out venue. bwahahaha...

    the tickets are free.

  3. I am sure that the phones and video cameras will be confiscated at the door.
    All two of 'em.

    Is this a free country or what?

  4. "Every year, the nonprofit clinic that focuses on sexual and prenatal health tries to bring in someone it believes has a story to share"
    Sarah can certainly explain what NOT to do. Wonder if anyone will question her wisdom of flying while "pregnant". Doubt it. Wonder where Trig will be "born" in this speech.

  5. hahaha thug. You are spot on!
