Planned Parenthood’s Annual Fundraiser: Farm to Table on Tap

This year, Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley celebrates 79 years as a vital part of the local San Gabriel Valley communities with an elegant Farm-to-Table-inspired dinner at a popular Pasadena restaurant.
Supporters will dine on organic, sustainably-sourced cuisine and mingle with fellow party goers in recognition of the vital health care services and accurate information Planned Parenthood provides. In a time of dramatic change for the health care landscape, Planned Parenthood is more important than ever to local families, and continues to expand services to meet the increased need for preventive care.
“We’re here to ensure that nobody gets left behind as the health care framework in our country shifts,” said Sheri Bonner, President and CEO. “We’re grateful for our growing number of supporters who value Planned Parenthood as a trusted place that women and families rely on for the critical services and tools needed to plan a healthy future.”
Community members convene for the Fall Benefit, one of two annual events that celebrate the work of this essential organization. Over 41,000 local residents received high-quality care at Planned Parenthood’s four local health centers and multiple satellite locations this past year. More than 95% of the health care services are preventive, including life-saving cancer screenings, all FDA-approved methods of birth control, annual exams, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections and much more.
Patron Chair, Joan T. Caillouette, reflects on the importance of the organization’s work, “Planned Parenthood provides essential family planning and reproductive health care services to thousands of women and families in our local communities every year,” she said. “I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that is so committed to a world where everyone gets the care they need, no matter what.”
Planned Parenthood supporters are passionate about investing in access to compassionate, comprehensive care to keep our communities healthy and thriving. Alongside Patron Chair Joan T. Caillouette and Benefit Chair, Fiona Harwich, many dynamic Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley leaders have joined the Benefit Committee, including Hilary Clark, Kate Clavijo, Lauren Frankel, Brooke Larsen Garlock, Kathy Gillespie, Pat Glazier, Monica Partridge, Eileen White Read, Jan Tranquada, and Felicia Williams.
