Last night, Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon held his annual All-White party to benefit the DC Boys and Girls Club. Garcon’s teammates and other local and international celebrities gathered to support the event, which raised $100K.
Redskins WR @PierreGarcon raised $100k for DC Boys and Girls Clubs at his all white party last night. Big jump from $30k last year.

The party, which featured a live and silent auction, saw an amazing increase of $70,000 in funds raised from last year.
With everything else going, on efforts like these often go unreported, but they’re more of the norm for professional athletes than you’d think. Kudos to Pierre for raising funds for a great cause.
