Who's Rebecca, anyway?...


I'm always amazed how this Prom thing continues to grow every year... especially this year, since we're going to be at The North Door!  It's an awesome venue with a great local flavor.  They also have quite a big publicity machine in place over there (soon you might begin to see posters around town for The Goddess Prom, as well as ads in the Chronicle and Statesman); it's amazing to me to see it in action.

Since Prom is getting so much more exposure, I've been getting some emails lately from people who want to know who it is that organizes this whole Prom shindig...

Hiya.  <waves!>    I'm Rebecca.     :-)

I own my own floral design studio, Bella Fiori.  I specialize in weddings and event design, and I've been in business since 1997.  My experience in the wedding industry means I have access to a network of other event professionals, and I use those contacts to organize the Prom every spring.

Why Planned Parenthood?  They were there for me.  I was able to get birth control pills at a price I could afford, all through college.  They even let my boyfriend (now my husband) come with me to my very first exam.  I was 19.  They were compassionate and took good care of me.  Later, when I could afford to pay them more, I did. 

It makes me sick to see hatefulness toward women.  Hateful policies, hateful agendas...  Grr!  Now that I have the resources, I do what I can to organize events that I hope can help Planned Parenthood do their important work.


Hey, when it doesn't matter what you do, all that matters is what you do...



With thanks to YOU for coming on this awesome adventure with me,

-Rebecca

I think you should put the song that ya'll did last year "we're not gonna take it" on a CD and sell them at the Prom - I know I'd buy one for $5 and give them as presents and as a promo for the next year's prom.

Aw, that's a sweet idea! We had so much fun doing that. Copyright restrictions being what they are, I can't make a CD and sell it, even if all the funds went to PP donations. I love that it made such an impression on everyone, though! :-D
