Charity Red Carpet Premiere of Pollywood Nights

Knock Out Abuse and Fight Night Galas: Ladies vs. Gentlemen

This past Thursday, November 11, was an eventful night in Washington- on one end of town the men had their fun, while on the other, the women had theirs. The men’s-only Fight Night filled up the Washington Hilton, while the female-friendly Knock Out Abuse Against Women gala took over the Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.—and both rallied for their own causes.

With 2,000 men in tuxes dominating the hotel’s ballroom, the 17th annual Fight Night raised money for the education and health care nonprofit Fight for Children. But the program itself was for grown-ups only.
