On January 13, 2017 we held a fundraising event with Planned Parenthood of Western PA (PPWP) complete with drinks, appetizers and information on what we can do in 2017 to show support for Planned Parenthood and find ways to become more informed and elicit change. From button making, poster/rally sign making, to workshops about how to become more involved and engaged with the community, we were had plenty of activities for supporters of all ages. What remained consistent were the people who were steadfast on creating change and standing with institutions and likeminded individuals during this period of change and unpredictability.
We had no clue how many people to expect at the event, but we were absolutely blown away by the support and generosity of those who stopped by and even those who were unable to attend! The restaurant was packed with people, love and support.
In total, Planned Parenthood of Western PA received $2,739 from the event and we’ve decided to match that by donating $2,800 on behalf of the Square Café staff, resulting in a grand total of $5,539.
