The Knights of Columbus of Cooke, Montague, and Clay Counties presented a $25,000 check to Sandee Feyereisen, executive director of All Babies Born Alive (ABBA) Women’s Center in Gainesville. The $25,000 raised by the local Knights of Columbus grant program will be matched by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council to purchase a new 3D-4D Color Ultrasound Machine for ABBA.
ABBA is a North Texas and Southern Oklahoma pregnancy resource center which currently has the third highest call volume among pregnancy centers in Texas.
Representing the Knights at the presentation were Texas District 16 Deputy John Shiffer, and Grand Knights Danny Wolf of Gainesville Council 1167, Jerry Metzler of Lindsay Council 11905, Craig Stoffels of Muenster Council 1459, and Mike Becan of Moncla (Montague/Clay) Council 14339 serving Henrietta, Bowie, Montague, and Nocona.
The money was raised at a Knights-sponsored barbecue dinner benefit held Saturday, Sept. 1 at the Centennial Hall in Lindsay.
