Birds & Bees Bash!

On March 14, 2015 Planned Parenthood of Santa Barbara, Ventura & San Luis Obispo Counties, Inc. held the Birds and Bees Bash at the Coral Casino. It was a magical evening featuring Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and PPSBVSLO’s new President & CEO Jenna Tosh. The Jean K. Schuyler Award for outstanding volunteerism was presented to Joan Wells. A special guest appearance was made by a President Obama impersonator, Reggie Brown. It was great fun, and nearly $190,000 was raised to support PPSBVSLO’s programs and services.
