    From Planned Parenthood Southeast:

    Set your calendars - it's time to Paint the Village Pink again! Our sixth annual fundraising event will take place in EAV on Friday, June 23.

    Our goal is to raise mission-critical funds for Planned Parenthood Southeast and our very own East Atlanta Health Center. As you know, it takes a village. That's why we're asking for your help as event sponsors. 

    This year, we're promoting PTVP as an all-day event and raffle. Daytime sponsors, we'll stage our raffle prize boxes at your business. Supporters can drop in, check out the prizes at each location, and enter to win. We'll also offer early t-shirt sales in the village. Then, we'll move the raffle prize boxes to our nighttime sponsor locations for our bar crawlers. We'll also include your bar or restaurant on our bar crawl map. 

    All sponsors will be featured on our printed promotional materials for the event as well as online in social networking posts and on the fundraising website. You'll also receive a decor package, including posters, postcards, balloons, and swag for the event.

    Ready to be a sponsor?

    • A donation of $100 or more gets you in! And if you donate $200 or more, you'll also receive 10 event t-shirts for you and your staff. SIGN UP HERE

    • Consider donating a prize for the raffle. Ideas include a gift basket that showcases your products, gift cards to your business, or a cash donation toward the cost of a big raffle prize. Additionally, if you have any relationships with places you think might be willing to donate a prize for the raffle, please let us know! It doesn’t have to be a business in EAV.

    • RSVP by May 19, 2023

    If you have questions or need additional details, please reach out to Tony Kearney, Director of Strategic Relationships at PPSE, at tony.kearney@ppse.org.
