About 400 community leaders are expected to attend the 18th annual benefit dinner at McGregor Baptist Church on Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $70 each or $400 for a table of eight. Sponsorships, which include a VIP reception with Green, are available from $1,000 to $10,000. Tickets may be purchased at www.lifelinefamilycenter.org/benefitdinner or by calling 239-242-7238.

“We are very pleased that Steve Green will be coming to Southwest Florida to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary of helping young women in crisis pregnancies. His music of Christian beliefs has touched thousands of lives around the world,” said Lifeline Family Center President and Founder Kathy Miller in a prepared statement. “The Biblical values reflected in his music align with those of Lifeline Family Center.”

Lifeline Family Center provides a home in Cape Coral for homeless young women in crisis pregnancies to help them become self-supporting through education, job training, parenting classes, professional counseling and spiritual guidance. It is the only residential program in Lee County for homeless young women in crisis pregnancies who are not part of the foster care program.

In the residential program, Lifeline Family Center serves up to 12 young women, ages 16 to 22, and up to 24 babies at a time. In the Outreach Ministry program, more than 6,000 women have received assistance with material needs, adoption counseling and resource referrals. The non-profit also operates a 24/7 Pregnancy Phone Helpline, provides free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds by appointment, and does outreach to all areas of Lee County, including all college campuses.

Several young women who have graduated from the two-year residential program also will speak about their experience at the benefit dinner and how Lifeline Family Center made a difference in their lives.
