Second annual Rivertowns for Reproductive Rights fundraiser to raise money to help those living in or traveling to New York state receive reproductive care.

Rivertowns for Reproductive Rights, a group of about 30 local women from half a dozen rivertowns in Westchester County, is raising money to increase  access to reproductive care in New York.

Work for The Hud Indy

The group is hoping to raise $35,000 this year through its second annual fundraiser, “Dance for Choice,” on Sept. 21 at HudCo in Dobbs Ferry, monetary donations, and an auction made possible through the donations of local individuals and businesses. While tickets to the event are sold out, the auction is live through Sept. 24.

About 50 local restaurants, small businesses, and artists from the rivertowns have donated items for the auction, ranging from gift certificates and designer handbags to a three-month cheese of the month club membership and Broadway tickets.

Donations can be made here: https://go.rallyup.com/r4rr/Campaign/Details.

“Every dollar donated to this fundraiser will go directly to helping a patient access the abortion care they need, regardless of their means or whether they live in a state that has restricted abortion rights,” says Leslie Seery, founder of Rivertowns for Reproductive Rights.

All proceeds go to the New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF.) The fund helps women living in and traveling to New York state who need financial support to pay for an abortion.
