[Party Pix] Knock Out Abuse & Its Afterparty Attractions

Co-chaired in its 19th year by Charrisse Jackson-Jordan and Michelle Schoenfeld, and attended by some 700 femme fatales in cocktail attire adapted to the Moulin Rouge theme, Knock Out Abuse returned to the Ritz Carlton last Thursday night, raising close to half a million dollars for a handful of community beneficiaries to include Bethany House, Crossway Community, DC Volunteer Lawyers Project and Safe Shores.

Enjoying performance entertainment by the SAX restaurant dancers (above) and male models during dinner, every gal in attendance was surprised with a courtesy blow… out provided by DC’s new Drybar, and had the opportunity to end the night with a little arm candy, too (besides that donated by Georgetown Cupcake).

Continuing with tradition, the guys from the night’s complementary Fight Night event, including Mayor Vincent Gray and entertainer M.C. Hammer, flooded the Ritz ballroom for a co-ed afterparty with tunes spun by old school entertainer Doug E. Fresh.
