More than 75 supporters of reproductive health attended the Second Thursday fundraising event at Sherwood Forest Thursday.

A taco bar was provided by Sherwood Forest and wine tasting was provided by Cash Wise Liquor. Proceeds raised for WeARE Advocates for Reproductive Education were $2,500, and 18 people signed up to volunteer.

WeARE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit promoting and providing comprehensive reproductive health education and services. Their goal is to open a clinic for confidential, comprehensive reproductive health services, such as birth control and sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, in October 2017.

All proceeds from the event go to start-up funding for the clinic.
