Dear Parents of precious babies,

Thank you for submitting a picture to The Right to Life of Holland Area Precious Baby Contest. Votes were cast for your precious baby both online and at the Hudsonville Community Fair. We have heard that many of our voters enjoyed the online voting experience, so we will highlight this again next year!

This year there were 14 precious baby entries, each one unique and special in their own way.  Remember this was NOT a “cutest baby” contest but a PRECIOUS BABY contest that raises funds to help save the lives of the un-born from the ravages of abortion.

Our contest raised $2,319.00 after all the votes were tallied (from ONLINE and at the HUDSONVILLE FAIR):

1st Place Winner – Braxton Veltman (parents: Joshua & Stephanie Veltman) – will receive a $150 gift card to tip toes Children’s store in Holland, MI and a $250 Master Card gift card.

Star Parker is the founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal & Education, Star Parker is one of the names on the short list mentioned when anyone speaks of national black conservative leaders. Star Parker is the founder and president of The Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a public policy think tank that promotes market-based solutions to fight poverty. Before involvement in social activism, Star had seven years of first-hand experience in the grip of welfare dependency. After consulting on federal Welfare Reform in the mid-90s, she founded UrbanCure to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America’s poor from government dependency. Star has a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and International Business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards and commendations for her work on public policy issues. She regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market- based strategies to fight poverty; she has spoken on more than 190 colleges and universities about anti-poverty initiatives; has authored several books; and is a nationally syndicated columnist with Morris Communication Group. Many of national acclaim would agree that Star Parker has established herself as a thoughtful and energetic leader in Washington D.C and her UrbanCure advisory board includes folks of note such as Generals John Ashcroft and Ed Meese; Doctors Ben Carson, Robert P. George, George Gilder, Marvin Olasky and Walter E. Williams.
