Lifted, Juan Carlos Pagan, 17″ x 24″, Print. Available at auction at PLAN A! at Dobbin St on Saturday, January 28th, 2017

 

On Saturday, January 28th, Greenpoint’s Dobbin St is hosting an evening of dancing, exhibited artwork, and a 4-hour open bar, with proceeds donated to Planned Parenthood.

The team at Tickled HOT Pink partnered with Medium Rare to put together a bevy of food and drink sponsors plus a set of live DJs that all together makes up PLAN A!, a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. 

If you can’t make it for the PLAN A! fundraiser, you can still donate directly to Planned Parenthood. But hopefully see you there!
