In October 2016, Planned Parenthood turned 100 years strong. Planned Parenthood was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams — no ceilings, no limits.
Today, Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider, an informed educator, a passionate advocate, and a global partner helping similar organisations around the world. Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide.
The art world has shown resounding support for Planned Parenthood, including raising over $2.5 million at the 2015 Choice Works auction, co-chaired by Marilyn Minter, Cindy Sherman, and Laurie Simmons. As a continuation of the Choice Works programming, eight significant artworks will be auctioned off at Planned Parenthood’s 100th Anniversary Gala to help raise contributions for Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood of New York City.
In advance of the auction, browse lots and place max bids before live bidding begins on May 2nd at 9:00pm ET. When the sale opens, all pre-registered users can participate and watch the bidding unfold in real time. Registration for the live auction will close on May 2nd at 6:00pm ET.
Because the event has received overwhelming response and interest, a silent auction featuring over 40 works by leading artists will launch the day of the gala to help raise additional funds needed to safeguard reproductive rights at this critical time.
