*Livestream option also available

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest is recognizing 60 years of service in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties. We've done a lot in six decades: We've grown from an information booth in Balboa Park to one of the largest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the country, with more than 700 dedicated staff and 19 bustling health centers — and counting. Millions of people have received lifesaving health care, comprehensive sex education, and the rights and protections that result from over half a century of dogged advocacy. Join us on May 22 to celebrate the courage and resolve of our local organization and the staff, patients, donors, and volunteers who make up our movement.

Following the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision, our affiliate saw a 500% increase in out-of-state-patients seeking abortion care. We are proud to be a refuge for our patients, who travel from near and far to access the care they need and deserve. The Campaign for Abortion Access is our answer to the increased demand for our services. Thanks to the incredible generosity of an anonymous supporter, all donations to our Campaign for Abortion Access will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000!

Together we are strong and committed to keeping Planned Parenthood’s doors open to all, no matter what.

Join the Honorary Committee

With your help, we can continue to provide birth control, cancer screenings, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, gender-affirming hormone therapy, pregnancy testing and options counseling, abortion care, and so much more. We can expand and open new health centers in underserved areas, train the next generation of reproductive health care providers and advocates, and reach countless young people and teachers with the vital information they need.

We invite you to join chairs Amy Corton and Carl Eibl on the Honorary Committee with a gift of $5,000 or more.

Event Chairs

Amy Corton & Carl Eibl

Amy and Carl have been dedicated supporters of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest for decades, a commitment that inspired their leadership of the ongoing Campaign for Abortion Access. They believe every one of us has a vital role to play as we fight for the future we want, the future our children and grandchildren deserve.


As a movement we have huge impact, and we hope you will help us celebrate that with the Pompoms for Planned Parenthood initiative.

Supporters can contribute to have a pompom made for a special curated Art installation to uplift the countless lives changed by Planned Parenthood. Each pompom will represent someone who has come to us for care. All funds raised will go to our Campaign for Abortion Access, and be matched, up to $250,000!

We hope you will join us in this effort to create impact through Art. Thank you for being part of this community and your support.
