My site is nothing really special in terms of look and feel (though I do like the WordPress Twenty Sixteen default theme’s clean look), so I can only imagine that I’m listed here for what my site does and how I use it. I must say that I’m in some interesting company at least.

At their annual Fall Benefit, Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley welcomed 375 guests to the Pasadena Langham Huntington Hotel. The event raised over $378,000 in much-needed funds for the organization’s four health care centers located in Pasadena, Eagle Rock, Alhambra and Glendora.

The evening honored Joan Caillouette for more than 60 years of service and dedication to the organization’s mission. Caillouette began volunteering at the Pasadena health center in the early 1960s. For the next 15 years, she became a warm and dependable presence caring for patients each week and even enlisting the help of her husband, Dr. James Caillouette. In the 1970s and 80s she served two terms as the chair of the Board of Directors. She has also chaired the patron committee for the Fall Benefit for nearly 60 years.

Emcees for the event were Roni Geva and Margaret Katch, creators of the pro-choice comedy, CTRL ALT DELETE, an award-winning short film series that highlights their passions for female-driven stories and the intersection of art and activism.

Founded in 1933 by Pasadena residents dedicated to women’s health, PPPSGV is not only among the oldest of Planned Parenthood affiliates—they’re also one of the fastest growing. Today, they see over 60,000 patient visits per year and deliver over 15,000 opportunities for sex and relationship education in local schools and colleges.
