Black & White Ball




When: Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 7pm
Red Carpet Moment for VIP Sponsors at 5:30pm

Where: The JW Marriott Austin

Why: Family violence continues to be a major problem in Texas.
Nearly 200,000 Texans were beaten by their intimate partners in 2017. 74% of all Texans either know someone who has been a victim of domestic violence or have been victims themselves. It is estimated the U.S. economy loses $8.3 billion annually due to domestic violence. Statistics tell us the only human service directly correlated with a decrease in domestic violence is access to legal solutions.

How: Assist The Project in providing legal solutions and access to justice to those who need them the most. Become a sponsor today, and ensure no Texan faces these issues alone.

Leaders in the legal, consulting, finance, and technology fields joined together for an evening of live music, auctions, and awards celebrating 36 years of service. At the 12th Annual Black & White Ball, The Project honored community leaders who embody its mission of preventing violence through free legal services, access to the justice system, and education for victims. The Project’s Generosity of Spirit Award was presented to The Covalent Foundation; the Vision Award was given to Senator Joan Huffman; and Tina, a client who has escaped abuse and transitioned to a new life of safety, was honored with the Courage Award.

In addition to the awards, the evening featured a plated dinner, live music from local band Third Language, and one of Austin's liveliest auctions of the year, helmed by Heath Hale Auctioneers.

Thanks to the communities support, this year's Black & White Ball was able to raise over $550k to help continue The Project's work!
