Hundreds join Planned Parenthood for Cocktails for a Cause

Planned Parenthood pinked up Sacramento Monday night with its first Cocktails for a Cause – a networking event for young professionals in the State Capitol.

More than 200 women and men attended the evening event held at LowBrau in Midtown. They were treated to signature cocktails like Pretty Ricky and Dirty Laundry.

  • Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson
  • Senator Marty Block
  • Assemblymember Richard Bloom
  • Assemblymember Matt Dababneh
  • Assemblymember Bill Dodd
  • Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia  
  • Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian

One highlight from the evening was a choreographed dance to Uptown Funk, performed by staff from Planned Parenthood’s statewide office – led by party organizer Erica Root. Even Kathy Kneer, our President and CEO, threw down some smooth moves.

She emphasized the importance of taking action and thanked the crowd for their support of Planned Parenthood.

California Planned Parenthood Education Fund would like to thank the following organizations and individuals for sponsoring Cocktails for a Cause.
