The Gala raises the critical funds to serve the more than 25,000 Maryland adults, teens, and families who rely on PPM each year for quality, affordable health care and education, no matter what. 

PPM's function as a community-based health provider places it in a special role as a safety net and preventive health resource for many of the state's uninsured and underinsured residents. Even as we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, our community continues to face political and economic uncertainty and disruptions to personal lives. We provide Marylanders with the quality care they need at low or no cost thanks to donor-supported programs and fundraising events like these.


This year’s featured Gala speaker is 21-year-old activist, strategist, and influencer from Tucson, Arizona, Deja Foxx. Already, Deja has taken on her Tucson high school’s sex education system, fighting for reform (and won), co-founded the El Rio Reproductive Health Access Project in 2017 alongside untraditional youth leaders, founded the GenZ Girl Gang her freshman year in college at Columbia University, took her sophomore year off to join the Kamala Harris For The People Campaign, and served on the Planned Parenthood of Arizona’s Board of Directors.  At the PPM Gala, Deja will speak to how she and other GenZ leaders are not just changing tomorrow, but changing today. 


The Spring Gala will also include a special presentation of Planned Parenthood of Maryland’s Betty Tyler Award, given to an individual or organization that has demonstrated outstanding leadership in protecting and/or advancing reproductive rights in Maryland. This year’s award will be presented to Maryland’s Attorney General, Brian E. Frosh.
