SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The Pregnancy Resource Center in San Clemente held its eighth annual Fundraising Gala on Friday, May 8, at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. The center raised more than $165,000 in one-time donations from the 367 people in attendance. These funds go directly to center operations, enabling the Pregnancy Resource Center to offer all services free to clients. Services include pregnancy tests, pregnancy options counseling, limited OB ultrasounds, birth and parenting classes, and abortion recovery support.
Star Parker, who is a national commentator on CNN, TBN, CSPAN, CBN and Fox News, as well as founder and president of The Center for Urban Renewal and Education in Washington D.C., was the guest speaker. She shared her personal journey from welfare to conservative advocate, encouraging all in attendance to support the work being done at the Pregnancy Resource Center in San Clemente.
