U.S. Rep. Darin LaHood will be the featured speaker at the 38th annual Respect Life Dinner scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 6, at Barrack’s Cater Inn in Peoria.

A member of St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Peoria, LaHood has represented the 18th District of Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2015 and currently serves on the House Ways and Means Committee.

He is a graduate of Spalding Institute in Peoria, Loras College in Dubuque, and the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. LaHood resides in Dunlap with his wife, Kristen, and their three children. Saying he is “proud and honored to be pro-life,” LaHood pledges to continue as an “active advocate in Congress for protecting life and preserving the rights of the unborn.”
