Sarah Palin will speak at a "pregnancy resource center" Oct 2
From Salt Lake Weekly
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.
Boy this is really rich. The woman who can't keep her daughter from getting knocked up is speaking at a pregnancy crisis center. The only woman I know who got a pass on being pregnant before marriage was Mary, mother of Jesus. And Bristol ain't no Mary.
And this "nonprofit" refuses to say how much they are paying Hoohah:
SALT LAKE CITY — Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is coming to Utah next month to headline the Pregnancy Resource Center's annual "Banquet for Life" fundraiser.
But just how much the Christian faith-based, nonprofit organization is paying the former Alaska governor for the appearance is not being made public.
"We are very, very limited in what we can say," said Kevin Andrews, the center's board chairman, citing the terms of the contract signed with Palin. "I can't get into it. I can say it was very reasonable given our expectations."
Andrews said the organization is also obligated to pick up "very nominal" expenses for Palin. He said the seven-member board has already covered both her fees and expenses, through donations as well as from their own pockets.
