The 21st Annual Human Life Foundation Dinner will be:



The 50th Anniversary of the Human Life Review


For the past 20 years, the Human Life Review has honored a person or persons with its Great Defender of Life award. This year, for our 50th Anniversary gala, we are honoring the Human Life Review itself—its heroes, writers, and all those who have made this milestone possible.

We will be unveiling more details, including special guests, in the weeks to come, so keep checking this page for updates and informati0on.

Come celebrate with us!

More about our annual dinners:

Each year, the Human Life Review honors a worthy person or persons* with its Great Defender of Life Award. A fundraising dinner is held each fall at the Union League Club in New York City’s Murray Hill neighborhood. The club’s warm atmosphere and the gathering of like-minded people make this dinner a NYC pro-life scene favorite, and many of our loyal readers and supporters come year after year. 

We’d like to invite you to join this special and growing family. 

Check this page for regular info and updates about our most current and past dinners, and as always, feel free to add your comments and questions!


* in 2020 there was a tribute journal to honor essential workers in place of a dinner due to Covid-19 restrictions, and in 2024 we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary!


Can’t make the dinner?   Your fully tax-deductible gift will help us to ensure a successful evening for all involved. Your name will also be recognized in the dinner journal.
