It was a record-setting night at the Brazos Pregnancy Clinic “Celebrate Life with Laughter” Gala Friday night at the Granbury Resort Conference Center.

Julia Pannell, who chaired the program, reports donations doubled from last year’s event. The gala was attended by 340 people, and brought in about $161,000 before expenses.

Additionally, Pannell noted that Granbury was the first to host both Rep. Jodie Laubenberg, R-Parker, and Sen. Glenn Hegar, R-Katy, following the passage of Texas House Bill 2, which bans abortion after 20 weeks and requires surgical center stipulations for abortion clinics.

The Brazos Pregnancy Clinic served 600 people last year, and soon will need more space to serve a growing population, according to Pannell.
