Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania on Tuesday kicks off a drive to raise $1.4 million by the end of the year.

Its “Committed to Care” campaign marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion. The money will help ensure the chapter's fiscal health and ability to provide health care and reproductive choice to anyone who needs it.

The chapter is hosting a happy hour from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday at Birmingham Bridge Tavern, 2901 Sarah St., with a $5 suggested donation at the door.
