President, March for Life
We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker at the March for Life's 34th Annual Rose Dinner is Super Bowl champion and pro-life advocate Matt Birk!
The Rose Dinner is the conclusion of the 2016 March for Life activities, on the evening of January 22. The event is held at the March for Life's host hotel, the Downtown DC Renaissance, and begins with a cocktail hour at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $100.00 per person and require registration in advance.
Matt Birk is a 15 year veteran of the National Football League. He was recognized as the 2011 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year, which acknowledges off the field contributions to the community, as well as on the field accomplishments. Named to the Pro Bowl 6 times, Matt’s career culminated in February of 2013 in a Super Bowl win for the Baltimore Ravens.
Following the Ravens' victory, Matt chose not to participate in the White House Super Bowl celebratory meeting with President Obama because of the president’s support for Planned Parenthood, a decision that received significant media coverage. Matt and his wife, Adrianna, are both actively involved in the pro-life movement, including with their local pregnancy center and past participation in pro-life marches. The couple have 6 children and currently reside in Greenwich, CT.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear from Super Bowl champion and pro-life advocate Matt Birk. The Rose Dinner is an inspirational conclusion to the 2016 March for Life, as well as a kick-off to returning to our communities and vocations to impact our culture for life.
