Sunshine and a constant breeze greeted 29 teams who came out to participate in Vitae Foundation’s Louis H. Rackers Memorial Pro-Life Golf Classic on Monday, June 11, at the picturesque Jefferson City Country Club. A barbecue lunch was provided prior to the shotgun start at 1:00.

As everyone putted for birdies and eagles, they did so for the common goal of strengthening Vitae’s powerful mission, using research-based digital strategies to reach women facing unplanned pregnancies. When that connection is made, women find Pregnancy Help Centers where life-affirming options and real help await, providing results they can live with.

In support of Vitae’s mission to reach more women facing unplanned pregnancies, we sincerely thank all of those who donated to this year’s event. These efforts take us one step closer to making abortion unthinkable.

Congratulations to all the golfers for not only their impressive scores, but also for making a difference in the lives of women in crisis.

Let’s not forget the Silent Auction! Thanks to our generous sponsors, the auction was full of valuable and rare items that made for some competitive bidding. Thanks to all those who placed bids! If you didn’t get a chance to participate in this year’s tournament and wish to donate, please donate today. The Vitae Foundation graciously accepts donations at any time as we continually strive to reach more women and give them the opportunity to choose life with hope and courage.

Pencil in next year’s Golf Classic – Monday, June 10, 2019 – and keep fighting for the cause!
