This event is generally considered to be an adult-focused event and business casual attire is typical.

Who is our host, Amy Bingaman?

Amy is a high school dropout.

Amy was pregnant at 16 years of age.

Amy went from living in a suburb of St. Louis to living in the inner city projects of St. Louis.

She is now a former Navy officer with 8.5 years of active duty service.

She is now an Obstetrician/Gynecologist in Des Moines, IA.

She is now the proud mother of 4 and happily married for 17 years.

Amy has been an active board member of EYES OPEN IOWA for the past 5 years.

Our statistics - specifically teen birth rates - speak for themselves!  They speak so loud and clear that OTHER STATES are now requesting our training! Despite this, the political atmosphere has been challenging.  Changes to the funding we received from Department of Human Services made it challenging for us to continue to receive funds. These funding changes will also leave thousands of Iowa teens without access to medically accurate, unbiased and honest sexual health education.

We all have commitments. We are all too busy. But, If you have not heard, BINGAMAN parties are the BEST! 

This event will include drinks, food, raffles and A SILENT AUCTION.

The raffle for previous military will be this amazing cornhole set!
