On Thursday, June 4 at 7 p.m. ET, NFL wide receiver Pierre Garçon will host the Third Annual All-White Clothing Charity Event benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington (BGCGW) at the Millennium Building (1909 K St. NW). The rooftop event will team up Washington football players, NFL executives, community leaders and Washington notables.
As part of Garçon’s continued involvement in supporting at risk youth, his partnership with BGCGW seeks to create a stronger generation of future leaders across the nation. Last year, Garçon’s charity event raised $100,000 for BGCGW.
“I’m dedicated to the organization and helping boys and girls of all backgrounds become responsible adults,” Garçon said. “Organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington helped get me where I am today, so now’s my time to give back.”
High profile attendees from the first and second annual events include Washington Wizard John Wall, former DC Mayor Vincent Gray, hip hop legend Biz Markie and over 20 Redskins, among them RG3, Ryan Kerrigan, Alfred Morris, Kirk Cousins, Trent Williams, Brandon Meriweather, Kory Lichtensteiger, Kai Forbath, Colt McCoy and Niles Paul.
Attendees this year will have access to meet and mingle with over half of Garçon’s confirmed teammates and enjoy complimentary drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions and a live performance by a surprise musical guest.
With the help of top sponsors The Tower Companies, Paisano’s, Burger 7, Brett Johnson Collection, Garçon intends to raise more funds for the BGCGW and their mission. Tickets are $250 and can be purchased at: http://www.bgcgw.org/
