Planned Parenthood Fundraiser in Chicago


Last week I emceed the Freedom Friday fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of Illinois (you can see one other photo here). The event photographer was kind enough to email me a few photos but as I don’t have any others of the event these are all I can share. If anyone finds other event photos online, please send them to me and I will pass on!

The event co-chairs, Betsy Lehman Levisay and Jenny Friedes, were so well-spoken in their promotion of the quality of work that Planned Parenthood of Illinois does and I was enormously proud to be part of such an event. I was also happy to hear Steve Trombley and Julie Gold (“Mid” Lifetime Achievement Award recipient who was honored) speak about their passion for women’s reproductive health rights and the ongoing work of Planned Parenthood.

Learn more about how you can support women’s sexual health by visiting the Planned Parenthood of Illinois site or the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health, one of my other favorite health organizations in the country.
