East End Benefit

On Saturday, June 2, guests came together to support our health care services, education programs, and advocacy work in the East End of Long Island at our 30th Annual East End Benefit. They also had the opportunity to see the unique artwork Hills & Valleys and hear artist and activist Niki Johnson speak about her work and the influence politics has on it.
Guests enjoyed good food and drinks and the opportunity to see old friends and make new ones. We extend our appreciation to the event co-chairs, Barbara Clarke and Ann Pogue, the event committee, and all those who helped make the event so special.

February 3, 2018
We brought the 80’s back on Saturday, February 3 for our 80’s Bash at Tarrytown House Estate on the Hudson in Tarrytown, NY. This is the second annual event from a group of donors from the Rivertowns. Co-chairs Kimberly Meisner, Rochelle Steinwurtzel, Allison Taylor, and Andrew Tucker, along with their committee members, contacted everyone in their community to attend the event, contribute in-kind items, and donate to the live and silent auction.
The committee chose to share the proceeds with Pro Familias in Puerto Rico, a member of International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). Pro Familias was hit hard by Hurricane Maria in 2017 and still needs help. We were fortunate to share a special thank you message from Lin Manuel Miranda and his mother who are strong supporters of Planned Parenthood and rebuilding Puerto Rico. The Miranda family donated special tickets to a Hamilton performance that were auctioned in our live auction.

Dirty Mouths Dirty Martinis Comedy Night
January 17, 2018
Nearly 200 guests braved the fierce winter weather to get to the Irvington Town Hall Theater on Wednesday, January 17, for our Second Annual PPHP Dirty Mouths Dirty Martinis Comedy Night. Together, we laughed along with our seven comedians who entertained us with material on Planned Parenthood, dating, marriage, and being single in NYC. We also enjoyed delicious cocktails, wine, appetizers, and desserts donated from Revenge BBQ, Lombardi’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Birch Collective, Cheesecake Factory, Black Cat Café, Susan and Peter Chatzky, Shoprite, and Stop & Shop.
We thank PPHP Board member Susan Chatzky for bringing this event to our donors when she wanted to celebrate her grandmother, Jean Carroll, who was America’s first female stand-up comic. We are grateful to committee members Khris Tahmin and Erica Spera for securing the comedians and for the delicious food that our guests greatly enjoyed.
