On Friday, October 29th, the Capitol Steps entertained guests with an evening of political comedy at The Choice Event, Planned Parenthood’s 22nd Annual Fall Choice Event and Auction. The uproarious, Washington-based troupe of Congressional staffers turned songwriters performed their special brand of musical and political satire, proving again that they “put the ‘mock’ in democracy!” Throughout the evening, guests dined on delicious food and drink and placed bids on a variety of silent auction items, including vacation homes, and dinners at Philadelphia’s culinary hot spots. The event, held at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, raised over $85,000 with proceeds supporting the services Planned Parenthood provides to the local community. Photography by Doug Weissman
