November 22, 2017 update:

Biggest and best ever! That’s how we would describe Bella’s annual Gala for Life that was held on October 12, 2017. “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” was the event’s theme as we celebrated all the beautiful clients that have been served at Bella and the precious babies that have been born this last year. Many of Bella’s clients and babies were present at the Gala and one even shared her personal story with the group gathered for the occasion.

Rebecca Kiessling, a family law attorney, also shared her profound testimony of identity crisis after learning that she had been conceived in rape and then almost aborted twice, before being born and placed for adoption. The attendees were captive listeners as she explained how she went from feeling worthless to priceless and how she now defends children from abortion who have been conceived in rape.

With 369 people in attendance, the fundraising aspects of the Gala were also very successful with over $58,000 pledged or given that night. When adding in the corporate donations, table and tickets sales, and other gifts that were given prior to the event, the 2017 Gala for Life grossed just over $78,000!! Our heartfelt thanks to each and every person who supported this event!!

The next Gala for Life will be held at the Spearfish Holiday Inn Convention Center on Thursday, October 18, 2018.
