Fundraising Event For Center for Sexual Pleasure & Health Earns More Than $16K

PAWTUCKET, R.I.—A recent fundraising event for the Center for Sexual Pleasure & Health brought in a total of $16,560 for the sex-positive adult educational organization. Funds raised by the event will help The CSPH support its mission towards providing comprehensive and pleasure-based sexual health and education services. Billed as “An Affair to Remember,” the event also celebrated the CSPH’s five-year anniversary. “‘An Affair to Remember’ was a huge milestone for The CSPH,” said Program Managerv Kira Manser. “It was an incredibly fun and powerful night, reflecting on everything we as an organization have accomplished. It showed both The CSPH's fun and serious sides as well! We got silly, and posed with large stuffed reproductive organ plushies in our photobooth, and also talked about the ways our work impacts people's lives, keeping them from feeling broken or ashamed of their desires. We appreciated everyone who came out and celebrated with us, and can't wait to see where we'll be in five more years!” The fundraiser featured an art installation titled "A Place at the Table.” Showcasing dinner plates crafted by local New England artists, each plate honored a significant moment in the history of the field of sexualit, including a wooden plate honoring CSPH Founder Megan Andelloux, designed by William Guise. The places were auctioned off throughout the event. Additional silent auction items were also available, ranging from wellness packages to a weekend stay in the Berkshires. The night also included music and hors' d'oeuvres, with a custom-crafted, signature CSPH cocktail and gift bag for each attendee. The evening was sponsored byAmazing Intimate Essentials, The Miriam Hospital, Blush Novelties, Giant Microbes, RIFuture.org, Partners in Sex Education, Lucky Bloke, Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, Sybian, National Sex Ed Conference and Good Vibrations.
