Planned Parenthood Fights for Funding...With a Sex Party?

Relevant to the debate going on in Congress to strip the millions of tax dollars that go to abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood, I thought you might find this little article of interest. It's from Driadonna Roland, a staff writer of the mobile news service, Democrat and Chronicle.

Planned Parenthood’s Safer Sex Party

Discussing sex is sure to create a stir, but mentioning the term Planned Parenthood might cause an even bigger one. On Saturday the two will merge for The Safer Sex Party, a fundraiser hosted by young professionals group R.E.A.L. for Planned Parenthood for the Greater Rochester and Syracuse Region.

The State Street Bank will be transformed into a lavish party for ages 21 and up from 7 p.m. to midnight for an event that invites guests to bust the myths, get the facts (about sex) and have fun doing it.

Organizers promise the event will be tasteful. It features an aphrodisiac bar inside the bank’s vault, burlesque shows and complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Proper attire is required.

Parking is available at the Sister Cities Garage. There’s also a free after party at Vinyl, 291 Alexander St, for those who show their tickets from the Safer Sex Party.

Proceeds will go for sexual education for young people. Tickets are $40 at Boulder Coffee, Parkleigh and at Planned Parenthood locations around town. Tickets are $50 at the door.
