On Thursday, June 2nd, L’union Suite was in DC  to support Pierre Garçon  in his efforts to raise money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington D.C.

The Haitian-American wide receiver held his fourth annual All-White Charity Event in Washington, D.C alongside friends, coaches, teammates, socialites, and District influencers including hip-hop legend Doug E. Fresh who graced the crowd with a surprise performance.

“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 past 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.” – Pierre Garcon

This year, the event sold a variety of silent and live auction items and the event helped raise nearly $100,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.   The night ended with an after-party at Shadow Room.
