On Tuesday, September 27, we hosted our annual Empower Gala at the Hilton Westchester with 320 supporters of PPHP. During the evening, we honored the Westchester Women’s Agenda for their incredible work as our community partner and Jane Orans for her lifetime commitment to PPHP. Former Texas State Senator Wendy Davis delivered an heart-felt and motivational keynote address about the struggles of her grandmother and mother and how she used their strength and experiences to get where she is, and we listened to our staff member Jenna as she told us her emotional story of getting an illegal abortion in Ecuador.
Throughout the evening, guests bid on items in the silent auction and purchased copies of Wendy Davis’s book, Forgetting to Be Afraid. We also auctioned two pairs of pink sneakers like those Wendy wore during her 13-hour filibuster to block HB-2 in 2013. Wendy then autographed the sneakers for the winning bidders. We also had a pledge moment, when guests showed their support for PPHP by making donations ranging from $5,000 to $100.
Several local legislators also attended and showed their support: NY State Senators Andrea Stewart-Cousins and George Lattimer, NY Assemblymembers David Buchwald, Sandy Galef, Ellen Jaffee, and Amy Paulin, Westchester County Legislators Catherine Parker and MaryJane Shimsky, New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson, and Mamaroneck Supervisor Nancy Seligson.

On Sunday, July 10, we held our annual Summer Benefit at the home of Marsha and Henry Laufer in Old Field, NY. Set on a bluff overlooking the Long Island Sound and surrounded by spectacular gardens, more than 150 guests joined us in honoring retiring US Congressman Steve Israel and Tamra and Gerry Stoller for their dedication to PPHP.
During the event, guests had the opportunity to taste eight delicious wines and two Finlandia Vodka specialty drinks. During the live service auction, guests donated more than $14,000 to help us improve security at our 10 health centers and administrative offices. We will purchase indoor and exterior high-definition cameras at each of our health centers, motion-centered lighting, convex mirrors in hallways, and special peep holes for interiors doors.
Through the purchase of tickets and sponsorships, the silent auction, wine sales, and the service auction, more than $97,000 was raised for PPHP. It was a wonderful event, bringing together old friends and new.
28th Annual East End Benefit
May 29, 2016
It was a great kick-off to the summer on Sunday, May 29 at PPHP's 28th Annual East End Benefit. More than 320 guests enjoyed delicious food from Almond Restaurant, and tasty beverages from Casa Dragones Tequila, Channing Daughters Winery, and Montauk Brewing Company. Held at Steven Klein’s West Kill Farm in Bridgehampton, special guest award-winning actor Martha Plimpton spoke to the crowd about the importance of women and men having places like Planned Parenthood to go to for their health care needs and how we need to destigmatize abortion.
Music from Jesse Harris with Star Rover, DJ Twilo, and Jack & Eliza kept the guests entertained as they mixed and mingled with each other. In addition to raising $222,000 for PPHP’s health care services and education programs through sponsorship packages and tickets, guests also donated more than $28,000 for PPHP’s new, state-of-the-art health center being planned for Riverhead. Special thanks to the committee co-chairs Bonnie Buckner, Michael Halsband, Tracey Loggia, and Jill Scheuer for their hard work to make the event so successful.
