Circus-themed Celebrate the Promise dinner raises money for counseling, adoption


Miriam’s Promise, a not-for-profit agency offering pregnancy, parenting, and adoption services in Middle Tennessee, invites the community to its annual fundraising dinner, Celebrate the Promise.

The event will take place Friday, April 5, 2019 at Liberty Hall at The Factory in Franklin. Registration will begin at 6 p.m. Money raised from this circus-themed event will allow Miriam’s Promise to offer pregnancy counseling at no charge to women who find themselves in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy, as well as adoption services to people hoping to grow their family through adoption. Tickets are available at

miriam's promise“Our people are the heart and hands of Miriam’s Promise,” Executive Director Debbie Robinson says. “We have an amazing staff who feel privileged to walk through the journey of adoption with families and are honored to provide support and compassion to the women we serve in times of tough decisions.”

Bob Tuke, who received the prestigious Holland Award, says: “To be honored with the 2019 Robbin Holland Promise Award is almost hard to fathom. First, predecessor recipients like Chuckles Collins, Dan Elkins, and Jan van Eys who have contributed so much to Miriam’s Promise … it is just heartwarming to be among them. Even more pleasing, though, is the opportunity to help Miriam’s Promise do what it does so well: Miriam’s Promise builds bridges through crisis pregnancy counseling and child placement services, offering assistance for domestic, international and independent adoptions, as well as post-placement services. It helps families to be created, to be happy, to be secure and to be nurtured through God’s love.”
