Students host Planned Parenthood themed benefit at the Pink House
Part of the $7 cover went to the global organization
On Saturday, a group of USC undergraduates hosted a self-described benefit concert with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood at the Pink House on 23rd Street.
The event featured a $7 cover to attend as well as free condoms and a table selling merchandise from a student brand called Popular Vote.
Hannah Hicks, one of the organizers, said in a direct statement on Tuesday: “We were inspired by todays political climate obviously, and the threats to cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood, which is really important to all of us and so many others – so we decided to make our event for a good cause, but also to incentivize other people to maybe throw concerts like this in the future, where people can both have fun and make a difference, even if its a small one.”
The event was held for credit in a music production class.
“I had never been to a party like that in my life,” said attendee John Remington. “Most parties don’t have political causes.”
