Tehachapi's Online Community News & Entertainment Guide

An Evening for Life, Sept. 9

Tehachapi offers many opportunities throughout the year to mingle with friends and family, make new friends, build relationships and enjoy life with each other while building a stronger, healthier community. From festivals to the Farmers Market to charitable events, celebrations abound in our growing mountain town. An Evening for Life is one of these amazing experiences.

An Evening for Life is an annual fundraising event held to support the work of the Family Life Pregnancy Center. The center is 100% donor based and offers many pregnancy related resources to anyone in our community (women and men), including outlying areas, free of charge. Our services for self-administered pregnancy testing, limited ultrasounds (up to 14 weeks), childbirth/parenting classes, material resources (from baby essentials to clothing and more), classes to overcome child loss or childhood trauma, sexual health education – just keep growing and everything is free!

With only five staff members, the center is able to provide these resources with the much appreciated help of faithful volunteers, strong board members and generous donors. While donations of all kinds are always greatly needed and appreciated, An Evening for Life offers a fun time for community members to gather together and enjoy a lighthearted evening, while investing in their community.

Every year, generous sponsors allow us to present this festive, FUNdraising event, so we can continue to invest more resources, grow stronger individuals and families and provide more opportunities for our community. This year’s Evening for Life, being held on Sept. 9 at Arosa Pines (22265 Delta Ct.), is sponsored by The Semerenko Team, The Loop newspaper, South Street Digital, Vintage V12’s, TK’s Pizza, Waste Management, Bank of the Sierra, Alert Disaster Restoration, Ashmore Motors, Lara Berard Realtor and Access Real Estate, the Zimmerman Family, the Green Family, and several anonymous sponsors. We are so grateful for their support!

An Evening for Life offers wine and beer tastings, as well as a delicious dinner and dessert. The heart of the evening are the auctions. We have silent and live auctions, which provides for exciting and lively entertainment! Finally, the evening winds down with a little dancing under the stars. Such a wonderful event for date night or a girls (or guys) night out!

While all proceeds of the evening go toward supporting and enhancing the work of the center, this special time allows us to serve our generous sponsors and donors and give back to those who support our work as they go home with full bellies, a gift or more from auctions won, and hopefully, a full heart - filled with all the love and appreciation we have for each individual.

Sponsorships are still available. Contact Faith Green at the center, for more information. Tickets to the event are $125 per person and are available for purchase at the center or by calling (661) 823-8255.

We hope you’ll join us!
