The Right to Life of Indianapolis organization welcomed supporters to  their 36th annual Celebrate Life Fundraising Dinner Sept. 25 at the Marriott in downtown Indy.

Students from the BCHS Pro-Life Club had the chance to experience this event and learn more about what it truly means to have a respect for all life.

The main goal of the Right to Life organization is to help gain support in the community for the lives of unborn children and the elderly.

The highlight of the night was keynote speaker David Bereit. He is the author and former CEO of 40 Days for Life and gave a moving speech about his journey as a pro-life advocate.

During the night, awards were also given out. Carol Wissel received The Charles E. Stimming, Sr. Pro-LIfe Award and Kay Cull received the Respect for Life Award. Other successful people in the state have won this award including Vice President and former governor of Indiana Mike Pence. The President of Right to Life Indianapolis, Marc Tuttle, introduced the contest and award winners.
