On Friday, April 26, Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada (WRMCSN) raised more than $250,000 at the 28th Annual Shareholders in Life Banquet & Silent Auction at Rio Pavilion Convention Center. More than 840 guests listened to a keynote speech from Governor Sarah Palin along with comments from WRMCSN’s Chief Executive Officer Esther Caruso-Golleher.

Palin and Caruso-Golleher spoke about saving the lives of unborn children by providing complimentary education and resources, including pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, maternity and baby clothes, diapers, formula and more, to allow pregnant women to make a choice for life. SOS Radio Network’s Brad and Chris Staley served as masters of ceremony. All proceeds benefited the organization’s mission to provide complimentary services and programs to women, children and men who are faced with a pregnancy they did not plan.

The event also included a plated meal and silent auction where guests mingled and bid on an array of exclusive items, including a two-night stay at Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, four Disneyland® Resort one-day Park Hopper® tickets ($500 value), 14-karat white gold diamond earrings from Morgan Taylor Jewelers ($3,000 value), a Ralston Diamond Parachute Hobo ($795 value), a set of four ceramic coasters embossed with the United States Seal and signed by Senator Dean Heller and much more.

For more than 25 years, WRMCSN has served families in Southern Nevada. Through the organization’s efforts, an estimated 35,000 babies have been born and benefited from WRMCSN’s spiritual, physical, emotional and educational support. In 2012, the nonprofit assisted more than 5,000 clients in Southern Nevada.

About the Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada

The Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada (WRMCSN) has been serving the community since 1985. We are a non-profit 501c3, faith based organization that provides complimentary services and programs to women, children and men, who are experiencing pregnancy-related crisis. Statistics from the Center for Disease Control and the Alan Guttmacher Institute indicate that 93 percent of all abortions occur because of social or economic reasons and that 50 percent of women who have had an abortion in the past are more likely to have another. Since 1985, we have personally met with some of these women and we have found that the majority of them would not choose abortion if they simply had someone to assist them in their circumstance. The Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada acts as that support as we embrace these women and give them the resources that they need. When women feel like they have no other choice but abortion, our organization strives to assist them with more choices. All of the services that we offer are free of charge to our clients.
