Welcome back to Banquets!                                  April 29, 2023  



We are excited to bring back the connections, conversations, the greeting of old friends, meeting new friends, the dining experience, the inspiration, and the venue for giving to a very worthy cause. This year we have a film themed event and we are honored to feature MELISSA COLES as our event speaker. Melissa was featured in the documentary, I Lived on Parker Avenue, and had a role in the feature film, LIFEMARK. Melissa had more than a roll in LIFEMARK, it's her story, and the story of her son for whom she chose to give life...and the beauty of adoption.  

From the Movie's website...

David’s comfortable world is turned upside down when his birthmother unexpectedly reaches out to him, longing to meet the 18-year-old son she’s only held once. With the encouragement of his adoptive parents, David embarks on a journey of discovery that leads to a staggering truth from his past. From executive producers Kirk Cameron and the Kendrick Brothers—creators of War Room and Fireproof—comes LIFEMARK, inspired by an incredible true story that celebrates the gift of life.


Please join us for a very moving and impactful evening, one not to miss.


We are having local, Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, Cameron McClean provide a culinary experience for us! Cameron is a restauranteur (and Innkeeper) in Twain Harte, owning The Local Press, The Shack at Twain Harte Lake, and Gables Cedar Creek Inn. He's a talented and very busy guy, has a heart for what we do, and we are thrilled to provide top shelf catering for you! 



Do you love FPC and the unalienable right to life? Do you love helping families be the best they can be? Do you love straight shooting speakers that God will probably use to spark something amazing into your life? How about amazing food? Do you know how much we love you and appreciate you "putting [your hard-earned] money where your mouth is" to support life and family, right here in Tuolumne County? If you answered YES to any of these questions, We will see you Saturday, April 29th at the Sonora Fairgrounds with doors opening @ 5:30. Thank you!


If you didn't see LIFEMARK in the theater, rent it and watch it. We feel it would make our banquet a more meaningful experience to watch it beforehand. You can rent the movie for a few bucks through Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Redbox, YouTube, Direct TV, or free if you have a subscription to Hoopla.
