A fundraiser for the Anchorage-based pro-life Community Pregnancy Center (CPC) will occur on April 2. The 35th Annual Spring Lunch, Tea & Auction will raise support for one of the state’s premier pro-life clinics.

Founded in 1984, the CPC is a Christ-centered organization created to offer support, practical care, and accurate information to women facing unplanned pregnancies. The organization offers free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD testing, post-abortion care and parenting classes with the goal of reducing abortions and empowering parents (both men and women) to choose life for their families.

The upcoming fundraiser will be in-person – including lunch, tea and silent and live auctions.

Amy Ford will be the featured speaker for the gathering. She is co-founder and president of Embrace Grace, a non-profit that trains and equips churches to open their doors and hearts to women with unexpected pregnancies. 

Amy Ford

Ford experienced an unplanned pregnancy in her teens. Feeling alone and uncomfortable in church, she founded a small group with a friend at her church for other girls who were also pregnant and needed friendship, guidance and love. This is how the idea of Embrace Grace was born. 

Ford speaks nationally to varied audiences, including women’s ministry events, pro-life and adoption conferences, churches and pregnancy center benefits. She is an author of “Help Her Be Brave: Discover Your Place in the Pro-Life Movement,” and has been featured on multiple national podcasts.

The April 2 fundraiser takes place at Change Point Alaska Church. It starts at 9 a.m. with the program and auction beginning at 11:30 a.m. For more information about tickets and sponsorships, contact Anjali at 907-375-7303 or email her at
