Every Woman Counts Luncheon
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
Join us Tuesday, April 23, 2019, in the Iowa Events Center Grand Ballroom in Des Moines, Iowa for an inspiring afternoon. Healthy Birth Day, Inc. will celebrate 10 years as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and five years of the Every Woman Counts luncheon — so look for special surprises!
Introducing Cara Brookins as our 2019 Every Woman Counts featured speaker.
Cara is best known for being the mom who built her own house using YouTube tutorials. She’s also a professional speaker and the author of eight books, including Rise, How a House Built a Family, which tells the story of building her 3,500 square foot house with the help of her four children.
News of Cara’s story went viral in more than 75 countries and was viewed more than two billion times. Cara continues to write and to push audiences around the world to build their biggest dream. Her inspirational story of courage and bold action has empowered millions of people and we know she will also encourage each one of us in our shared mission to save babies!
The Every Woman Counts luncheon is Healthy Birth Day, Inc.’s largest fundraising event of the year and is held each spring in a large ballroom in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Past speakers include Glennon Doyle Melton, Kelly Corrigan, Rachel Macy Stafford, and Melissa Radke.
Proceeds from each luncheon benefit the Count the Kicks awareness campaign and educate and empower more expectant moms to track their baby’s movements in the third trimester.
The 2018 Every Woman Counts luncheon raised $120,000 for our efforts to prevent stillbirth. We are deeply grateful to our table captains and event sponsors for making each luncheon a success. The 2019 luncheon will be our fifth year in a row for this fun and inspiring event!
