Read & Rights Planned Parenthood Fundraiser

Sunday, August 27, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Bookshop Presents: Read & Rights - A Literary Fundraiser for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte

Join us on Sunday, August 27th, from 4:00–6:00 for our Read & Rights Literary Fundraiser, benefiting Planned Parenthood Mar Monte. This special event at Bookshop Santa Cruz will feature a silent auction for exclusive Bookshop Santa Cruz experiences (book group trunk show!), a performance from The Handmaid's Tale by Jewel Theatre Company, a vintage feminist literature collection, and activity centers to write postcards with Santa Cruz Indivisible, make summertime "pussy visors," and write a personal thank you to Planned Parenthood's hardworking staff.

Ticketed portion: Make a donation (below or at the event) to our local Planned Parenthood and gain exclusive access to our Literary Refreshment Lounge. Four author-bartenders—Jonathan Franzen, Laurie R. King, Karen Joy Fowler, and Elizabeth McKenzie—will be serving up the beverages! Each ticket can be exchanged at the event for a wristband which will grant you in-and-out access and one drink in the Literary Lounge. Additional beverages may be purchased for $5 each to benefit Planned Parenthood. Light snacks will be provided by Chocolate restaurant. If you would like to secure access for multiple people, please make a donation for each person at a $15 minimum.

100% of all donations benefit Planned Parenthood of Santa Cruz and Watsonville. In order to make this event economically accessible to as many people as possible, tickets are available on a $15–$50 sliding scale. Please note: All are welcome to attend this event—only the Literary Refreshment Lounge requires a ticket.

Donate now and George Ow and Gail Michealis-Ow will generously match donations up to $10,000. Thank you to our event cosponsors: Good Times and Chocolate

Let's make a difference for health access in our comunity. Support Planned Parenthood!

This event is part of our Words to Act On partnership with Planned Parenthood, June-August.
