"Planned Parenthood was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams." Their centers offer a wide variety of health care, including cancer screenings, preventative care, primary care, STD testing and treatment, reproductive health services and even sex ed. The list of services that they offer is pretty wide spread. Approximately 1 in 5 women use Planned Parenthood for their health care. Despite all of the good that they do, some republicans are trying to defund this organization, which would be extremely detrimental and will put women across this country at risk. That's why it is extra important that you head to Zeke's Rock & Roll BBQ this Friday.
This Friday, January 13th a group of comedians will "Stand Up for Planned Parenthood" at Zeke's. These hilarious comedians are coming together to help raise money for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. The fund's purpose is, "to ensure that elected officials support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about family planning and reproductive health." A very important cause and a very important organization. The lineup of comedians involved in this event includes Wesley Ward, Lauren Uchalik, Will Green, Simply Shannell, and Ray Hollifield and the night will be hosted by Mike Stanley. Admission is only $5, so it won't cost you a ton to help PP and you'll get to see a great night of comedy too!
Seating for this event will start at 9 p.m. and the show begins at 10. Zeke's is located at 240 West 9 Mile in Ferndale. For more info on this event, click here.
