7th Annual WINGS Luncheon Benefiting New Friends New Life

Only a few seats are left for the 7th Annual WINGS Luncheon on Tuesday, April 13 at Union Station!! Chairmen Robin Bagwell and Ashlee Kleinert and Honorary Chairman Pat Smith will welcome guests to this fun luncheon catered by Wolfgang Puck.

New York Times Bestseller Author, Greg Mortenson is the keynote speaker. He is the co-author of Three Cups of Tea and author of Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Greg is in the process of building schools in remote, terrorist-ridden areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan, so that children can have the chance for learning and education. He believes education is the key to ending terrorism once and for all.

New Friends New Life is a faith-based agency whose mission is to help women working in sexually oriented businesses find conventional employment and build healthier lives for themselves and their children. Their clients (protégés) are encouraged to further their education and/or career training. In addition, NFNL partners with other agencies to provide legal, medical, educational opportunities and personal counseling to the protégés. They also provide them with life-skills training and biblical principles. If financial assistance is provided, it is for rent, utilities, childcare, transportation and other basic needs.

Individual tickets are $125 each. For more information, contact 214-965-0935.
