The Women’s Resource Center announces that Gordon Douglas will be the speaker at the Celebration of Life Fundraising Gala Thursday, Sept. 27 at the Natchitoches Events Center.

The gala will begin at 5:30 p.m. with refreshments and photos and the program will follow at 6:30. Dinner will follow the program.

Gordon Douglas.is someone who lives and loves to laugh. His comedy skills took him from the nightclubs in Philadelphia to Hollywood and then to his ministry.

Learning from his comedy hero Red Skelton, his comedy mixes real life stories with “off the wall” physical comedy and his own hilarious view of life. He helps see the funny things all around us and find joy no matter the circumstances.

Besides his vast comedy background, Douglas was named to Who’s Who in America’s Universities when he graduated from Philadelphia Biblical University in 1995. For the last 20 years Douglas has been 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 those with disabilities.

In honor of his hero Bob Hope, Douglas started Operation Bellylaughs, sending comedy DVDs to the troops. 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 it to continue to serve pregnant women and their children in this community at no cost. The buffet meal will be catered by Lasyone’s. You can request tickets by calling the Women’s Resource Center at 318-357-8888 or texting 318-527-0010. Tickets must be obtained in advance.
