    Supreme Knight to Receive Award at March for Life

    12/15/2020

    Tim Tebow to Address the
    39th Annual March for Life Rose Dinner,
    Held Virtually in 2021

    Knights of Columbus’ Carl Anderson to Receive Award

    WASHINGTON, D.C.  The March for Life announced that the Rose Dinner, an annual pro-life gala held on the evening of the March for Life, will be held virtually this year at 7:00 pm ET on Friday, January 29, 2021. The keynote speaker and guest of honor for the event is Tim Tebow, a professional athlete, NYT bestselling author, and Heisman Trophy recipient. In addition to Tebow’s keynote address, Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, will be honored with the 2021 Pro-Life Legacy Award, an award recognizing a lifetime of exceptional work advocating for the inherent dignity of the unborn human person.

    Pro-life advocate Tim Tebow has long demonstrated his care for the vulnerable, utilizing his public voice to speak of his strong conviction regarding the value and dignity of every human life. He established The Tim Tebow Foundation in 2010 with the goal to bring Faith, Hope, and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. The foundation fulfills this mission every day by making dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses, providing life-changing surgeries to children of the Philippines, and providing care for orphans in six countries and adoption aid grants for families who choose to adopt an international child with special needs – among other remarkable initiatives.

    “Tim Tebow is a devoted advocate for the most vulnerable and we are delighted he will address the Rose Dinner. He perfectly encapsulates the youth, energy, and enthusiasm of the pro-life movement, and his charitable work is an inspiration. We are honored to have him as this year’s keynote speaker,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life.

    Additionally, March for Life will be presenting the Pro-Life Legacy Award to Carl Anderson, former Professor and Dean of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute, former Special Assistant to President Ronald Reagan, and current Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus. Anderson has dedicated his career to furthering the pro-life cause through policy, education, and most recently, through his incredible work with the Knights of Columbus.

    “No one has done more to advance the pro-life cause than Carl Anderson, a true pro-life warrior, and highly deserving of this year’s Pro-Life Legacy Award. It is thanks in large part to the work of Anderson that the movement is where it is today. His work and tireless dedication to the cause is an example to all of us. We will continue to follow in his footsteps,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life.
