Leaders in the legal, consulting, finance, and technology fields joined together virtually, for the first time, for the 14th annual Black & White Ball, presented by Accenture. The evening included the launch of TAP’s new PSA outreach videos, the Vision Award presentation, Live Auction, Silent Auction, & a short concert, featuring local musical talent, Jimmie Vaughan! The Project was proud to honor Cynt Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, with the 2020 VISION Award, which is presented annually to a leader committed to ending power-based abuse in Texas.

Thanks to the communities support, our first ever virtual Black & White Ball was able to raise over $270,000 to help continue TAP's work!

Leaders in the legal, consulting, finance, and technology fields joined together for an evening of live music, auctions, and awards celebrating 37 years of service. At the 13th 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 Accenture; the Vision Award was given to State Representative John M. Zerwas, M.D.; and Danielle, 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 The Zebbras, and one of Austin's liveliest auctions of the year, helmed by Heath Hale Auctioneers.

Thanks to the communities support, the 2019 Black & White Ball was able to raise over half a milion dollars to help continue The Project's work!
