Friends of the Family Banquet with Gary Palmer and Blaine Adamson
Join the Pennsylvania Family Institute and Congressman Gary Palmer and Blaine Adamson at the Hershey Lodge Friday, September 22nd.
Rep. Gary Palmer represents the 6th district of Alabama in the US House of Representatives, and is recognized as one of the most conservative, pro-family members of Congress. Gary was playing shortstop on the practice field for the annual Congressional charity baseball game earlier this summer when he heard the first of many rifle shots ring out. He was standing just 20 or 30 feet from the gunman, and he yelled “that’s gunfire” and saw his colleague, Rep. Steve Scalise, playing second base, shot and critically wounded by the assailant’s bullet. If not for the heroic efforts of two special agents, Gary and all his colleagues would likely have all met their demise at the hands of the hate-filled gunman.
Rep. Palmer is the first member of his family to attend college, where he played for the Alabama Crimson Tide as a walk-on under legendary football Coach Bear Bryant. He is the founder and former CEO of the Alabama Family Alliance (sister organization to the Pennsylvania Family Institute), and is a recognized national leader in proposing and advancing policies that benefit families, promote free markets, protect life, and build a better society.
In addition to Congressman Palmer, we’ll welcome special guest Blaine Adamson, owner of Hands On Original, a Kentucky t-shirt printing and design business who is being prosecuted simply for operating his business in accordance with his Christian faith. His decision to refer a potential customer to another printing business – because the message requested violated his faith and convictions, landed him in court and cost his business more than a million dollars. His firm reliance on God in the face of persecution is absolutely hope-filled and amazing. You won’t want to miss hearing Blaine’s compelling story.
