Every year, the Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley holds a giant fundraiser at a celebrated home in the area. A few years ago, it was held on Annie Leibovitz's Rhinebeck property and this past weekend, to mark their 20th anniversary, the fundraiser was held on Illiana Van Meeteren's beautiful Rhinebeck estate (which happens to also be the location of the organization's first event in 1993).
It was an absolutely beautiful evening -- we watched the sun set over the Hudson River, made bids on the silent auction items and most importantly, raised funds for this esteemed organization... over $60,000 in one evening!
The event's annual t-shirt (modeled by Raina Kattelson's adorable daughter) was designed by the talented Renee Chan, who also designed the invitation for my shop's grand opening party. The circles in her design are meant to represent the embryo as well as the "circle of life."
For $25, you may purchase one of these custom designed shirts. Please email Gina Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. 100% of the proceeds go directly to Planned Parenthood.
