We are thrilled to bring our Twin Cities and Rochester families together for this memorable, one-of-a-kind event. We will celebrate God’s
50 years of faithfulness to New Life, as we look ahead with great anticipation to where He is calling us next.

This year, we are excited to feature Tim Tebow as our keynote speaker and Melissa Ohden as our emcee.

There is no cost to attend this event; during the program, there will be a time to give.

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow is a former professional football and baseball player, five-time NY Times best-selling author, speaker, and sports broadcaster. He is most passionate about his work with the Tim Tebow Foundation, which fights for those who can’t fight for themselves in over 70 countries and counting. Tim is married to Demi-Leigh Tebow: influencer, entrepreneur, and Miss Universe 2017.


Melissa Ohden

Melissa Ohden was fourteen when she learned that she was the survivor of a failed abortion. Now, she is a Master’s level social worker and the author of You Carried Me: A Daughter’s Memoir, as well as a second book coming in 2024. She is the founder and director of The Abortion Survivors Network, the only healing and advocacy organization for abortion survivors.



At our annual gala, our most substantial fundraising event, it is our goal that every dollar given or pledged the night of the event goes directly toward our clients and the services we provide.

Will you help us underwrite our gala this year, ensuring that New Life’s legacy and mission can continue to grow? Our goal is to cover the full expenses before the event; anything raised beyond that amount will go directly to serving our clients.
