Our Times: Orange County Communities

Costa Mesa

March 21, 2000|Danette Goulet, (949) 574-4221

The sun glinted off 40 shining green balloons held fast by children, parents and neighbors Saturday in Costa Mesa as they marched in St. Joachim Parish's seventh annual Walk-for-Life fund-raiser to benefit the Life Centers of Orange County.

Life Centers is a nonprofit organization that provides free counseling and health services to pregnant women.

Through sponsors, parishioners more than tripled last year's fund-raising results, said Diane Brown, treasurer of the anti-abortion committee.

"It far exceeded anything we've ever done," she said.

One walker, Estelle Redoutey, earned more than $1,000 in pledges.
