Planned Parenthood’s Spring Into Action Gala, The PR Net Celebrate Next-Gen Stars


Planned Parenthood honors Padma Lakshmi and Chrissy Teigen

Hosted at The Glasshouse in Chelsea, the Planned Parenthood Spring Into Action gala returned, benefitting Planned Parenthood of Greater New York with a fashionable fête. The event also honored Padma Lakshmi and Chrissy Teigen, who received the organization’s prestigious Champion of Change award for their advocacy and support for reproductive healthcare. The well-attended evening combined a cocktail party, seated dinner and awards ceremony, followed by a lively after party with DJ JUICY keeping the crowd going ’til late. The event, the first large-scale fundraiser since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, was particularly rousing for the crowd, and served as a reminder that New York is a beacon of hope and staunchly committed to its community amid other states rolling back women’s rights. Among those who joined Planned Parenthood of Greater New York president and CEO Wendy Stark and Planned Parenthood Federation of America president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson were Senator Chuck Schumer, Attorney General of New York Letitia James, Lily Allen, Sandra Bernhard, Hannah Bronfman, Anne Christensen, Katie Danziger, Izabela Depczyk, Nell Diamond, Steven Beltrani, Anh Duong, Jeanne Greenberg Rohaytn, Michele Hicks, Sarah Hoover, Jonathan Horowitz, Rebecca Jampol, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Alison Leiby, Diane L. Max, Marilyn Minter, Rob Pruitt, Laurie Simmons, Angela Trimbur, Irene Tu, Nicole Angel Wachter, and many more.
