Pierre Garcon had his first ‘All White’ charity party last year. A huge number of Redskins players attended, wearing almost entirely all white. Mike Shanahan was not, to my knowledge, one of the attendees.

But new coach Jay Gruden has already been fitted for his all-white outfit and is scheduled to be at Thursday’s downtown event, along with Robert Griffin III, more than 20 other teammates and “local and internationally known celebrity guests.” Gruden and Griffin were fitted for their white tuxes last week at Redskins Park.

The event — which benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington — is already sold out. Organizers say last year’s event raised more than $30,000 for BGCGW. Garcon, needless to say, plans on making it an annual event. He talked about his motivation with Sarah Kogod last year.

Here are more photos from the fitting session at Redskins Park.
