Birds & Bees Bash!

The Birds and Bees Bash was a smashing success! It was an unforgettable event celebrating the work of Planned Parenthood and the people who support that work. The event was held at the La Pacifica Terrace at the Coral Casino and celebrated Maryan Schall as the Jean K. Schuyler honoree. We had a record breaking year and netted over $230,000 for Planned Parenthood programs and services!

Choice Affairs

Choice Affairs is a signature series of fabulous events imagined, created, underwritten and put on by a dedicated group of Planned Parenthood volunteers and supporters. Kicking off our 26th season, we look back at some of the successes from 2015 – selling more than 480 tickets and grossing over $96,000 – from a series of events that spanned a behind-the-scenes tour of Hearst Castle, access to an exclusive Malibu Hills estate, and a tour of the Port of Hueneme, to name a few.  Choice Affairs offers exclusive experiences and has provided more than $1.2 million of funding for programs and services. September kicks of the new season – for those who are interested in participating as a volunteer, donor, hostess, or to ensure you are on the mailing list, please contact Meggan McCarthy: [email protected] Be on the lookout for the Choice Affairs booklet in the Springtime – February or March. Events take place between April and June 2016. Click here for more information.
