In the heart of Minneapolis on Thursday, an unusual kind of fashion show was getting underway. Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, hosted the event “Ready or Hot: Fashion Meets Passion for Planned Parenthood,” to celebrate Valentine’s Day and raise funds for an “excellent cause.”
