This reception-style event will feature live music by the Big Easy Jazz Band, delicious food, a silent auction, and more, including a special award presentation to longtime  pro-life leader Sharon Weston Broome.


Broome served in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1992 to 2004, and from 2004 to 2016 she served in the Louisiana Senate. From 2008-2016, when she was term limited, she was President Pro Tempore of the Senate, a leadership position she also held in the House as Speaker Pro Tempore.

She was a strong pro-life leader during her 24-year career in the Legislature. While in the House she was prime sponsor of the 1995 Women’s Right to Know Bill, and she authored two pro-life bills, the 2010 Ultrasound Before Abortion Act and the 2012 Hear the Heartbeat Act, as a senator. She was also a tireless advocate for Louisiana’s Abortion Alternative Funding Initiative, which provides pregnancy resource centers with federal funds to help serve women and children in Louisiana.

Broome also donated time to educating students on pro-life issues, speaking multiple times at Louisiana Right to Life’s Camp Joshua.

100 percent of the proceeds go to Louisiana Right to Life's Advertise for Life Project, which reaches women in crisis pregnancies through targeted online advertising that connects them with one of the state's pregnancy resource centers. In 2015, the project generated 1,247 pregnancy help phone calls to the crisis pregnancy hotline and nearly 16,000 clicks to the website.

About Louisiana Right to Life's Advertise for Life Project: Studies show that 95% of women who enter a pregnancy center choose life. Even with 30 pregnancy centers across Louisiana, 28 women a day still choose abortion. Advertise for Life uses targeted online advertising to reach abortion-minded women and connect them to pregnancy centers, where they can find the support and help they  need.
