Sexy Beast for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles is the shared vision of a group of influencers in the arts, united by a mission to harness the goodwill and powerful connections of the creative community to effect positive change, touch lives, and create a meaningful social impact.
(It’s also one hell of a party.)
Since its founding in 2014, the Sexy Beast art auction and gala has raised nearly a million dollars for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles over two milestone events. On October 20, 2018, we are aiming our sights even higher, bringing Sexy Beast back for an unmissable evening of art, food, music and culture. Given the unprecedented existential threat to this crucial provider of safe, caring, affordable health services, giving back has never been sexier or more important. In the lead up to our 2018 soirée, we will launch a series of exclusive art objects and editions, and host satellite events that tease out the connections between the art, design, food and fashion communities to maximize the benefit to PPLA.
For 50 years, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles (PPLA) health centers have provided preventive and reproductive care, accurate information and education to women, men and young people throughout LA County. Our services focus on life-saving cancer screenings, contraception, sexual health education and the testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections. Last year, PPLA provided 242K patient visits to 135K patients. We operate 19 health centers located throughout the County, including centers located in Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Long Beach, the San Fernando Valley, South LA, Boyle Heights, and the Antelope Valley.
