Washington Redskins’ wide receiver Pierre Garçon hosted his 4th Annual All White Charity Event benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington D.C. (BGCGW) last Thursday.
“I’ve been fortunate to call the D.C. area home for the past four years and to see how much the All-White Charity Event has grown in that time is astonishing,” he said in a statement. “Along with the Boys & Girls Clubs, we are helping to improve our community one kid at a time and I couldn’t be prouder to be part of that change.”
The all-white soiree brought an abundance of Redskins players including Kirk Cousins, Ryan Kerrigan, Trent Williams, Chris Baker, Niles Paul, Kedric Golston and Bashaud Breeland to the Millennium Building (1909 K Street NW) in Northwest D.C.
Athletes, socialites, and District influencers were not the only VIPs in attendance — hip hop icon Doug E. Fresh graced the crowd with a surprise performance.
Event attendees posed for pictures on the blue carpet, enjoying complimentary champagne, gambling tables and a live band before heading to the scenic rooftop for the main event. Partygoers – and there was plenty of them – mingled and danced to throwback tunes courtesy of DJ Pablo Paco while sipping event-themed cocktails provided by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and D’USSÉ.
This year, Pierre sold a variety of live auction items. The event helped raise nearly $100,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.
The fun didn’t stop once the charity event ended. The party continued down the block as many trekked to Shadow Room (2131 K St NW).
