The Women’s Resource Center is excited to announce that Gordon Douglas will be the guest speaker at this year annual Celebration of Life Fundraising Gala Thursday, Sept. 27 at 6:30 pm at the Natchitoches Events Center. Gordon is someone who lives and loves to laugh! His comedy skills took him from the nightclubs in Philadelphia to Hollywood – and then ended up in ministry.
Learning from his comedy hero Red Skelton, Gordon’s comedy mixes real life stories with “off the wall” physical comedy and his own hilarious view of life. He helps us see the funny things all around us and find joy no matter what we are going through.
Besides his vast comedy background, Gordon was named Who’s Who in America’s Universities when he graduated from Philadelphia Biblical University in 1995. For the last 20 years Gordon has served as the head of the pastoral board of the Delaware County Pregnancy Center and regional coordinator of the National Day of Prayer. In his spare time he is still the President of Therapeutic Construction and Design- making custom equipment for individuals with disabilities. In honor of his hero Bob Hope, Gordon started Operation Bellylaughs, sending comedy DVDs to the troops.
Gordon Douglas has been married to his wife Dawn for over 35 years. In addition to their five children they have opened their hearts and home to so many more.
The gala is the Women’s Resource Center’s largest fundraising event of the year and allows them to continue to serve pregnant women and their children in our community at no cost. It is sure to be a wonderful event complete with a buffet meal catered by Lasyone’s. You can request tickets by calling the Women’s Resource Center at 318-357-8888 or texting 318-527-0010.
