Style Uncorked, an annual fundraiser for Planned Parenthood, dazzled over 250 guests on a beautiful spring evening on Saturday, May 4th, at the Old Mill in San Marino. Party-goers donned brightly colored spring fashions for this garden party that burst with the scent of nearby flowering citrus trees. Guests enjoyed tantalizing tastes, sumptuous sips and forward fashions for the eighth consecutive year in support of the comprehensive sexual health education programs that Planned Parenthood provides to 24 communities throughout the San Gabriel Valley.

Style Uncorked 2013 Patron Chair Kristin Maschka took a creative approach, “This year we wanted to engage a younger group of supporters – parents, who can really benefit from asking questions of the experts at Planned Parenthood. Our guests revel, shop, and learn something useful – like how to talk to your kids about sex!” Planned Parenthood health educators hosted interactive presentations to give attendees the tools and resources they need to communicate effectively and responsibly about sexual and reproductive health.

Guests sampled beer tastings by Haven Gastropub, inventive wines and delicious bites from local eateries, while shopping for cutting edge fashions from partners Eleven8 and Suite 11 LA, must-have accessories by Brighton and unique jewelry from Carla De La Cruz Jewelry, with a percentage of all purchases supporting Planned Parenthood’s essential programs. Attendees vied to win a stunning 18-karat yellow gold pendant necklace with intricate hand-engraved floral details, courtesy of Single Stone on Mission Street in San Marino.

Planned Parenthood’s critical education and outreach programs annually provide over 50,000 women, men, and youth with tools to make healthy and informed decisions affecting their sexual health and wellbeing. Compassionate, skilled, and enthusiastic, Planned Parenthood health educators help youth stay safe and healthy, and give adults the accurate information and resources they need to be the primary sexual health educators in their children’s lives.

Since 1933, Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley has been here for every woman, man and family in need of affordable, preventive health care services and accurate information. Planned Parenthood serves 24 cities throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Health education that is comprehensive, medically accurate and age appropriate is an integral part of Planned Parenthood’s mission.
