Oven Fresh Media is proud to present PLANNED METROHOOD, a day of activism and fundraising for Planned Parenthood at local businesses on and around Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Thursday, March 30th, 2017.

Rebecca An, founder of Oven Fresh Media, has rallied artists and small businesses in her own neighborhood to participate in day-long marathon to raise money for Planned Parenthood. The entire day will consist of postcard writing to representatives about the women's health clinic and raising funds for PPNYC.

Fleur Noire Tattoo Parlour’s tattoo artists have made original feminist flash sheets for Planned Metrohood. Proceeds from these select tattoos will benefit Planned Parenthood. Please email fleurnoiretattoo@gmail.com to set up appointments with the artist and flash desired. Walk-ins welcome, but appointments strongly recommended. Click through the gallery for available tattoos.

Nitehawk Cinema will be donating $1 from every drink sold in their Lo-Res bar from 4pm to close to Planned Parenthood. Lo-Res will also screen female empowered videos on their TV screens the whole night.

New York Distilling Company will be donating $2 from the sale of any Dorothy Parker/pink gin drinks at The Shanty to the cause. 

Sugarburg will be donating $1 from the sales of draught beers to Planned Parenthood.

Oslo Coffee will be donating 5% of the sales from all three locations (Roebling Street, Bedford Ave, and 75th St Yorkville) to PPNYC.

Sizzle Pie is making benefit pizzas for Planned Parenthood and donating pies to performers and artists.

The day will conclude with a concert at Knitting Factory with performances by Desert Sharks, Treads, Circles/Waves, Lady Bits, and B.R.A. –– an entirely female-fronted lineup. There will also be a raffle with items from Milk Bar, Nitehawk, Northside Media Group (who will auction off two Northside Festival Music badges and a subscription to Brooklyn Magazine!) and other participating businesses during the concert. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to PPNYC. Tickets available here.

Postcard writing stations provided by Forward March NY (who organized the Women's March in NYC) will be set up at Lo-Res for attendees to write to their representatives.

More participating businesses will be announced on ovenfreshmedia.com.
