The Rose Life Connection: Helping Women In Our Communities Through The Beauty of Music
The Rose Life Benefit Concert Series is dedicated to celebrating God’s gift of human life. We represent pregnancy help centers to church congregations and communities through cultural, musical events. All of the proceeds from our events go directly to the life-giving crisis pregnancy counseling center which we choose to represent for each concert. We work to encourage partnerships between church communities and their local crisis pregnancy counseling center, offering people an ongoing opportunity to live the Gospel, serving those in need.
To uphold human dignity and help women, men, and babies in need by raising awareness of our local pregnancy counseling centers and to encourage community involvement by means of an ongoing concert series of classical music paying tribute to the gift of life.
Who we connect:
We make a difference by connecting the loving power of people. We focus on three main components:
1) Life-affirming pregnancy counseling centers and the women they serve
2) Churches/communities located near the centers
3) Professional musicians
How we connect:
We organize professional concerts at local churches and community venues, the proceeds of which are given to the local pregnancy counseling center. At the event we also present information about the good work done for women and invite people to learn more about their local center. The concerts are a way to give back to the community for their support and to celebrate the gift of life.
What our benefit concerts look like:
Our events have two main components:
Social: Refreshments, gallery display of women and their inspiring stories, and information about how to volunteer and/or support the pregnancy counseling center
Concert: Brief message about the pregnancy counseling center, who they help, and how to become involved, and a program of high-quality classical music

You can check out the article about one of our concerts that was published in the Inland Catholic Byte:
People from all three components benefit.
1) Pregnancy centers gain exposure, needed financial support, and prayers, which allows them to serve women better
2) Churches learn about where their community members can go when they are in need during a crisis pregnancy, have a new way to live the Gospel by becoming involved, and have a concert evening in which to build community
3) Musicians share their amazing gifts and creativity with appreciative audiences and are part of an inspiring project
