the event postponed

For more than a year, we’ve been looking forward to hosting the event and supporting the mission that is so meaningful to each of us. In light of the concerning trends we’re seeing in the pandemic, and despite our efforts to design an event with your health and safety in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event this year. 

Planned Parenthood Great Plains knows a thing or two about responding to emergency situations, and with our focus on positive health outcomes in mind, postponing the physical event made the most sense. Instead, we invite you to honor a tireless advocate and champion for our work, Jackie Lovelace Johnson, and celebrate PPGP’s clinical teams by contributing a sponsorship for “a non-event” in the spirit of community.

With or without an in-person event, our commitment remains the same: providing quality, accessible health care for all.

The Planned Parenthood community across greater Kansas City has made clear, time and again, that we are here for those who need us most. We are particularly proud of the compassionate response of PPGP in meeting the needs of its ever-growing base of patients during such a difficult time. PPGP will continue to ensure that all patients receive quality reproductive and sexual healthcare in every one of our health centers.

That is only possible because of the investment and partnership of supporters like you. 

Many thanks again for your generosity and continued support of PPGP. We’ll certainly miss celebrating with you this year but will plan for an even grander the event in 2022!
