In October 2016, Planned Parenthood marked our 100th Anniversary. What started as a single birth control clinic in Brooklyn has grown into a leader in the global fight for reproductive freedom.To celebrate this historic occasion, we invite you to join us for a once-in-a-lifetime gala to benefit Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood of New York City.

The evening will feature Choice Works, a live art auction of Major Works by Leading Artists.
