Last evening Ms. Myrna Murdock graciously opened her beautiful, historic home, Greystones Mansion in Honolulu to host an enjoyable meet and greet for Planned Parenthood Hawaii’s new CEO Ms. Andrea Anderson.

Greystones Mansion was built over a hundred years ago in 1903 by industrialist and founder of Honolulu Brewery & Malting Co. Alfred Hocking and is listed on the Hawaii and National Register of Historic Places.

As the new CEO, Andrea met with invited supporters, donors and staff on the lovely grounds. Andrea has been involved with Planned Parenthood in many capacities over the years, as a patient, a health educator and now as Hawaii’s CEO.

After a brief introduction from medical director Dr. Rahall, Andrea took questions from the attendees and shared her vision for Planned Parenthood Hawaii. In particular, her commitment to age appropriate and medically accurate sex education and the long term goal of expanding services to more islands. I encourage you to read Andrea’s latest interview in the Star Bulletin addressing the need for comprehensive sex education.

Making the night even more special was the attendance of Andrea’s mother Anne who was in town from Michigan. It was the perfect setting for a perfect evening. Click this PHOTO GALLERY LINK to see all the images from the event. (Photos: Cara Mazzei)
