Likeminded Professionals Meet through Planned Parenthood Young Leaders

Where can you drink cocktails called Witches' Brew, Headless Horseman, Jack O'Lantern and Pumpkintini; watch an entertainer make "dirty balloons;" and meet great people who support Planned Parenthood? At PPYL's Halloween Party & Cocktail Tasting!

On October 24, more than 30 people kicked off the holiday season at Victory Café in Albany. UHPP President/CEO Chelly Hegan encouraged the crowd to get involved in UHPP's mission. "The most important thing you can do in November is vote."

Planned Parenthood Young Leaders (PPYL) is a group of 40ish and younger professionals who support Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood's mission. The goal of PPYL is to build a new generation of supporters and advocates for reproductive choice, and the group hosts three annual events. Albany Medical Center is PPYL's Signature Sponsor. The Halloween Party & Cocktail Tasting also was sponsored by Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group.

Recent PPYL events were "Cocktails for a Cause" at Midtown Tap and Tea Room in February and the first annual Trivia Challenge at Revolution Hall in June. As public support for Planned Parenthood and UHPP grows, so does PPYL's momentum.
