Join us at Battle Creek Country Club for our 5th Annual Gala for Life:

Thursday, September 22, 6:00-8:30 PM!

The Annual Gala for Life is the largest and most crucial fundraiser for Alternatives of Battle Creek, a ministry committed to sharing the Love of Jesus Christ in both word and deed with men, women and children in the greater Battle Creek community.  With the opening of our doors this past April, the need for our services are continuing to grow.  To put it simply, we can't do this without you!

THE SPEAKER:  Jason Hanson

Jason Hanson retired in 2012 from the Detroit Lions after completing one of the most historical careers in NFL history, spanning 21 seasons as one of the league’s most productive kickers.   He ranks first in every statistical category for a place kicker in Lions’ history with records that include longest field goal (56), field goals made (495), and points scored (2,150).  He is the 4th all-time highest scorer in NFL history and holds the NFL record for most games played with one team (327), becoming the first player in NFL history to play 300 games with one franchise.  Jason is also the NFL record holder for most 40-yard field goals (188) and is tied for most 50-yard field goals (52).  

Jason is an active speaker in the Christian community and helped establish Providence Youth Outreach, which helped at risk youth in Pontiac, Michigan.  He is married to Kathleen, and they have three children:  Ryan, Jessica, and Luke.

Thank you for considering serving as a Table Host for our 5th Annual Gala for Life.

The requirements for hosting a table are simple.  An individual or couple serving as a table host will:

  • Be supportive of the Alternatives of Battle Creek mission
  • Faithfully pray for the Gala for Life in the weeks preceding the event
  • Invite guests to fill a table of eight or ten (including you)
As a table host you may wonder who you should ask.  This is a great opportunity to invite friends, business associates and community leaders who may not know about Alternatives of Battle Creek.  At the Gala for Life, they can hear first hand about the ministry through our program presentation and client testimonies.  Please make your guests aware that it is a fundraising banquet, and while there will be no pressure to give - an opportunity will be extended.

Contact the Development office to get started as a Table Host.
