If you choose to come and register the day of, you are welcome to do so, but the pricing increases and you may not receive a tee shirt.
Before and after the event, there will be lots of family fun in the Schoolhouse Square. There will be free ice cream available from Schoolhouse Scoop free coffee from Dunn Brothers, more free food provided by Green Mill. There will also be an inflatable castle, face painting and yard games for the whole family to enjoy! The center will also be open if you wish to have a look inside.
If you are participating in the 5K run, please arrive to the TLC of Hastings parking lot (see our address below) prior to start time so you can check in and get your tee shirt before the run begins at 8:30am. If you are a walker, the same thing applies, but the walk will not start until 9:15am. We encourage you to find street parking East of Hwy. 61.

TLC Gala 2015 - Results are in...
Thank you so much to those of you who attended our 2015 Gala! This year was exceptionally fun-filled and celebratory! We are grateful for the members of the community who came, enjoyed a special evening, and donated to our center.
We had a variety of both silent and live auction items this year that were all given by generous local businesses and individuals. We welcomed Brooke Ellis, a local musician, who came and shared her musical talents with our guests throughout the evening. Wendy Dodge-Agen and her staff from the Onion Grille provided a delicious meal for our guests.
Many of our attendees agreed that one of the highlights of the evening was the video put together by one of our board members, Scott Weber. He filmed a tour of the center, narrated by Executive Director Andrea Kullmann. Our board president, Todd Petit, spoke about the board of directors and what they do for the center. Scott also filmed a video testimony of a young woman we have helped. This client had gone through our Earn While You Learn Program throughout her pregnancy journey and she shared her emotional story with our gala guests. There were many happy tears shed during this portion of the evening. The video can now be viewed here.
New to our event this year was Jack Hines, our auctioneer. Jack supports our pro-life work and offered his professional services free of charge. His jokes and humor really made the live auction exciting and entertaining for everyone. Jack helped the center immensely and we raised more than double what we brought in from our last gala! He has already agreed to come back next year.
Once again, thank you to those who came and supported our center at our annual gala. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
