CANTON – July 28, 2022 – Hope Pregnancy Center’s annual fundraising gala is Saturday, September 10. It will include a dinner and concert by the Southern Gospel group The Erwins.

The nationally acclaimed sibling group – Keith, Kody, Kris, and Katie – will deliver an inspiring and uplifting concert that will appeal to people of all ages. The Erwins are known for their eclectic blend of gospel, bluegrass, and contemporary Christian style.

The Hope gala will be from 5:45 to 8:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Canton at 303 Athens St.

There are two ticket options for the event. The dinner and concert is $50/person. Concert-only tickets are $25/person. Tickets can be purchased online at, or by calling/texting the gala coordinator at 214-676-0886.

Sponsorship opportunities for the gala are also available, ranging from $300 to $2,500. Sponsorships help Hope underwrite the cost of the gala so that donation proceeds can go directly to its annual operating budget. Sponsors to date include Canton Vet Clinic, East Texas Orthodontics, Law Office of Julie Stern, Dux Public Relations, and First Baptist Canton, Vatermark Ministries, and Franklin Reality. Businesses, churches, or individuals interested in becoming sponsors can contact Hope’s gala coordinator.

Hope Pregnancy Center offers free confidential pregnancy tests and sonograms for women; parenting classes for moms and dads, and a post-abortion care program. Material resources such as diapers, baby toiletries, and clothing are also available to clients.

“The need to equip women and men with the support necessary to make life-affirming choices and prepare them for parenthood continues to grow,” said Debbie Brinkley, Executive Director of Hope Pregnancy Center. “This is why Hope is here and why we need the community’s support to be a positive resource for women and men facing an unplanned pregnancy.”

The non-profit Hope Pregnancy Center is funded entirely through support from individuals, businesses, and churches.

The gala will also be livestreamed to reach a broader audience. The livestream will start at 7 p.m. when the program and concert begin. It will be streamed on the center’s website at
