Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida presents its annual Choice Affair Luncheon on February 6, 2013, at Renaissance on 9th in Bradenton. Event proceeds benefit Planned Parenthood’s health and education services provided throughout Manatee County. The luncheon is chaired by Amanda Horne, Greg Porges, Esq. and Mary Ann Turner, and the exclusive newspaper sponsor is the Bradenton Herald.
Guests will enjoy lunch, networking with peers, and an engaging presentation by guest speaker Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President and Chief Experience Officer for Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA). Ms. Laguens joined PPFA and its Action Fund after leading the successful campaign to defeat the Pence amendment, a congressional effort to eliminate Planned Parenthood’s access to federal funding. She is a CLIO award-winning writer and director, one of the leading ballot measure consultants in America, and she is the mother of triplets!
This year’s annual luncheon also recognizes the 40th anniversary of ‘Roe v. Wade,’ the Supreme Court’s landmark decision that maintained that abortion should remain safe and legal, and the protection of a woman’s right to privacy.
