from Michael Geer, President & CEO – Pennsylvania Family Institute
This September, PA Family Institute marks our 30th anniversary, and I hope you can join me to celebrate!
One month from today, it will be 30 years since PA Family Institute opened its doors. I remember the day vividly as I settled into a small, one-room office in Harrisburg, excited to lead this new organization and give voice to families like yours across Pennsylvania.
By God’s grace, and thanks to people like you partnering with us, we now have become Pennsylvania’s leading pro-life, pro-family voice – making a significant difference for generations to come.
Thirty years is quite the milestone. And we want to celebrate it with the people that have made it all possible – you. What’s more, we’ve got big plans for the future — and Lord knows our children and grandchildren need us to stand up on their behalf now more than ever. That’s why I’m inviting you to join us for our 30th Anniversary Celebration Banquet in Hershey on Friday evening, September 27th. You won’t want to miss the big announcement we’re making that night — and I’m sure you’ll want to hear our exciting featured guest keynote speaker, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders served as White House Press Secretary and has become one of the leading voices of her generation. A mother of three, she’s someone with extraordinary talents whom TIME Magazine recognized as one of their “40 under 40.” And she recognizes the importance of family. When TIME asked what is one of the most overlooked issues facing our nation, she responded, “America needs more fathers taking an active role in their children’s lives.”
Her hero is her father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who has been a previous PA Family Institute banquet speaker and worked closely with our sister organization in Arkansas during his time as governor.
I’d love for you to join us, and to consider sponsoring a table for this exciting event. Some sponsorship levels include a private reception with Mrs. Sanders, and your sponsorship helps generously support the work of the Pennsylvania Family Institute. We expect this event will be a sell-out; individual dinner tickets will be made available in the near future.
I do hope you will join us in Hershey on Friday, September 27th. We will also be joined by another special guest, Bob Vander Plaats, President and CEO of The FAMiLY Leader, which is our sister organization in Iowa, who will join us for a big announcement in advancing our cause in Pennsylvania and beyond.

For anyone celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary, the “official” gift to mark this tremendous occasion are pearls. A pearl literally means “unique” and represents something that has endured and lasted under pressure.
I am truly grateful, looking back over the years, about how this organization has been able to last under a variety of pressures and has continued to endure – and thrive! This is a testimony ultimately to God’s kindness through the lasting, sacrificial support from families like yours.
