Project Beauty Share and Washington Trust Bank hosted the first annual Evening en Blanc on Sunday, Aug. 26. Inspired by the beauty and spectacle of the international phenomenon “Diner en Blanc,” the outdoor event shut down Summit Boulevard in Kendall Yards and treated the sold-out crowd of 300 guests, dressed in all white, to a stunning white tablescape, wine paired with an elegant picnic dinner, silent auction and more.

The event raised more than $105,000 to support Project Beauty Share’s mission. The local non-profit organization, founded in 2009, collects and distributes personal hygiene, cosmetics and beauty products to more than 50 local agencies that serve women and families overcoming  abuse, addiction, homelessness, illness and poverty. Project Beauty Share contributed over 40,000 pounds of products in 2017 and is on trend to top that by 40 percent in 2018.
