Our Christmas Virtual Gala was a huge success, if you missed it, you can watch the entire show below.

This year we went for the 'WOW' factor at our Christmas Gala.

We wanted to "wow" you with beautiful entertainment, with our message, and with fun.

Let's face it, it has been a rough year and we are all ready to celebrate. Sadly, our in-person banquet and gala was cancelled at the last moment, but the good news is that now, everyone, from anywhere, will be able to enjoy it here on our website to celebrate the coming of Advent and the birth of our Lord. And we celebrated the advances we have made in the pro-life movement.

But as you well know the battle isn't won and there is still work to be done.

You will hear inspiring pro-life talks from Maggie DeWitte and Bishop Joensen, participate in our online auction, and revel in the beauty of awe-inspiring Christmas music performed by our ROYAL CHILD choir and orchestra, starring vocalists Gina Gedler, Eric Sharp, and Tony Valdez … and more!

This Christmas Gala is a critical fundraiser for the success of our ongoing pro-life educational outreach. We need your ongoing support more than ever, as other funding outlets have been disrupted due to the pandemic.

The IFL team has worked so hard on this event, beginning last January. Yes, we’re pretty bummed by this turn of events. Nonetheless, we are grateful that technology allows us to stream this event to your phone or laptop or smart TV.

THE ROYAL CHILD goes far beyond typical banquets like IFL and countless other organizations do year in and year out. It is an experience.

God bless you for being pro-life!
