Emily’s Voice will define, acknowledge, honour and inspire heroes at this year’s annual dinner on August 23 at Rumours International.

The ministry will also unveil a new ad campaign and announce future expansion plans as Emily’s Voice continues to be raised from a whisper to a shout.

CEO Paul O’Rourke said the night was a rare opportunity to gather the “pro-love” community for an inspiring night of laughter and tears.

“The dictionary defines heroes as those who do brave deeds, exhibit noble qualities and display outstanding achievements,’’ he said.

“This ministry is built on such heroes; everyday people who stand up and speak out for the cause of life in many ways, from ‘starring’ in our ads, volunteering, praying and giving,’’ he said.

“We want to acknowledge those who have helped this ministry grow and become a real Toowoomba success story.

“It’s a relaxed night when we can dress up, and take the time to reflect on the success of our recent campaigns, thank our supporters and introduce new friends to the cause of life.

“It’s also an opportunity to raise much-needed funds which are used to expand the reach of Emily’s Voice into new markets.

“Past dinners have provided funding to expand into Tasmania and the Hunter Valley, bringing our potential audience to almost 1.5 million people.’’

As in past years, there will be lucky door prizes just for attending, as well as merchandise for sale, and some great entertainment.

This year, guests will also be able to buy photos from the night.

Tickets are $45, covering the two-course meal, punch and entertainment. Tables of eight sell for the discounted price of $360, and a table of 10 for $420.
