“(There’s a) desire inside each and every one of us to have a hero,” Dan Rosencrans, station manager of Family Line Radio, said Friday night during the Hope Pregnancy Center’s 13th annual banquet at the White Rock Baptist Church.

The opportunity for each member of the community to fulfill this desire has arrived. Through the banquet, the Hope Pregnancy Center staff set out packets and pledge cards, asking the community to support the center in its efforts to help women and teens in the community.

After all, Rosencrans said, life is short so seize the chance to become a hero now.

“(It’s a) short opportunity we have to make a difference in some ones’ life,” Rosencrans said.

Rosencrans was the guest speaker for the event. He replaced Michelle Madrid-Branch, director of the Adoption Means Love Foundation, who was unable to attend the banquet.

Everyone has the ability to become a hero; he said during his speech, the question is will they utilize their abilities?

“What will you do with the hidden power that is invested in you?” Rosencrans asked.

He encouraged the banquet’s attendees to invest everything, not just money, in the pregnancy center’s cause.

“Give your time, give your talent, not just your treasure,” he said.
