Valdosta-- A well known syndicated columnist is speaking in South Georgia tonight.

Cal Thomas will be the guest speaker at the Valdosta Pregnancy Support Clinic's annual fundraising banquet. About 700 people are expected to attend the dinner.

Organizers hope the event will raise enough money to help the clinic move to a new location where they can have all of their resources under one roof. "We're dreaming that we want to get in one big facility and combine our administrative things, our counseling, so that's what we're about tonight," said Organizer Barbara Griffin.

The pregnancy support clinic offers counseling, job training, and many other resources for women in crisis pregnancies.

The banquet starts at 7:00 tonight at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center.
