Birthright Fundraiser

Birthright of Fredericksburg will celebrate its 35th  anniversary as pregnancy  service organization this  year, and supporters hope  that 2011 will not also mark  its last year of operation.

The group faces an uncertain financial future, and so  organizers plan an anniversary celebration and  fundraiser on April 16.  Reservations are due Monday, April  11.

The lunch will be held  11:30 a.m. at the Seacobeck  Faculty Dining Hall at the  University of Mary Washington.

The event will feature  raffles, a fashion show and a  social hour. The cost is $35.  For details or to make reservations, contact Kathleen  Mahoney at 540/371-2073 or
