Life Choices Pregnancy Care Center has announced that Pam Tebow, mother of Heisman Trophy winner and Denver Broncos draft pick Tim Tebow, will be the keynote speaker at a fundraising banquet Sept. 16 in Starkville.
The event at the First Baptist Church Outreach Center, located at the corner of Lampkin and Jackson Streets, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person and include a tailgating themed dinner. Tickets will be on sale at Life Choices Pregnancy Care Center, 1204 Second Ave. N., in Columbus, and at the office of First Baptist Church in Starkville.
The daughter of an Army colonel, Pam Tebow lived all over the world until she was 17, when she entered the University of Florida, where she graduated cum laude with a degree in journalism and communications. In college, she met her husband, Bob; they have been married for 36 years and have five children ranging in age from 20 to 31.
The Tebows lived for a number of years as missionaries in the Philippines, where Bob continues to have an ongoing ministry.
The family has been in the media spotlight, especially since their youngest son, Tim, won the Heisman. Because ESPN aired the portion of an interview with Pam that focused on her refusal to abort Tim when she was advised to do so, she has been cast onto the national stage with a pro-life message.
Corporate table sponsorships are available. Gold sponsors may purchase a table for $1,000. Silver sponsorships are $800, and bronze sponsorships are $500. Each level receives eight tickets.
For more information, contact the Life Choices Center at 662-327-0500.

I wouldn't pay $1 to hear this woman speak. Good job riding your son's coat tails lady. Classy. The last time a Tebow came to Stakville, he cried.

Unlike the previous idiot, I will listen to this lady speak. Through her trust in the Lord, she refused to have an abortion and look at how the Lord has blessed the whole country in having Tim Tebow in the spotlight. It's hard for a "celebrity" to be such a fine example, but her son has been a light in the world. I will be there to listen to someone who obviously been through more than anyone in this town, and through her example, has raised a fine family.

The Tebow family have a powerful story. I never thought much about abortion until I saw the superbowl ad. Trying to figure out what the big deal was, I checked out their full interview. I'm still processing what it all means, but one thing is sure, I'm becoming the thing I once denounced...a one issue voter. I'll never again support groups or politicians that endorse the killing of unborn children. We live and learn. Thank you, Pam Tebow.

Hitler's mother also chose not to have an abortion. Just sayin.

Well Chucky, you and Kent can stay home. I hope Mrs. Tebow does well for her cause. Long live the 1st Amendment.

I don't think Tim Tebow being in the "spotlight" was a blessing for the whole country.

What's funny here is that the real Chuck Norris is one of Tebow's biggest fans. He even sent him a congratulatory FAX when Tim won the Heisman. Chuck also blogs favorably about Tim's parents. Do a Google search for Chuck Norris Tim Tebow.
Chuck Norris is a hard core conservative Republican. If you are going to use his name, at least get on the same page.

I am gonna have to agree with "lookout_its_chuck_norris". I would not pay $1 to hear her speak. But I would pay a small fortune to see her little boy cry again. Roll Tide Roll! 32 - 13 SEC championship game! Alabama made that boy cry like a little girl.

Wow, she had a baby and gave us a football player. Whoooooeeee, that was close, wasn't it? So, if you'll follow this ladies logic should we be angry with her because she didn't give birth to a Doctor instead?
Religious folks are such nuts.
