Last year was the first time I attended the party (art, food, music) and fundraiser called Love of Friends. They raise funds for Planned Parenthood (among other causes they support). It is ALWAYS on Valentines Day…has a DJ, folks with HULA hoops, a great group of people. Artists and craftspersons with stuff they make and sell are also there. That’s where I come in. I will attend and bring along my original art and photography. It is at Bakery Square this year, home to Google (Pittsburgh site).

One thing I will bring unique to Pittsburgh’s Esat End is my altered vintage Schenley Park Map. Only available from me and very popular with anyone who lives in the East End or went to Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh or Carlow University.
I will also have some prints of my “Homage to Famous Pittsburghers” series, and an example of a Custom House Portrait which can be ordered.
With the current news story about the breast cancer advocacy group Susan G. Komen for the Cure withdrawing funding to Planned Parenthood – money that had been used for breast exams and mammograms, what better time to support a group that among other causes, raises money for Planned Parenthood?
