Let’s Talk About Sex (Education)

Among states, Florida ranks sixth for unintended teen pregnancy, and receives the second-highest amount of abstinence-only education funding — falling just behind Texas, which has the third-highest teen birth rate.

This isn’t college football. We don’t want to beat Texas.

For 90 years, Planned Parenthood has made it its mission to provide unbiased sexual health education and make health care accessible for those who don’t have insurance. At the kick-off party for the annual Drag Me to the Ball event, which takes place in November, event co-chairs Sandra Saladrigas and Nicole Millar will be mixing, stirring, shaking and toasting drinks to women’s health on Wednesday, Women’s Equality Day, at Amici Ristorante & Bar (375 South County Rd., Palm Beach). In the spirit of Women’s Equality Day, the $10-per-person suggested donations and all tips earned will go to support Planned Parenthood’s Teen Time program, which provides medically accurate sexuality information to young people between the ages of 12 and 17. The event starts at 6 p.m. Call 561-472-9966.
Wed., Sept. 2, 6 p.m., 2009
