This past Friday evening Fashion Fights Poverty held its 10th annual gala at the Embassy of France.
FFP is an all-volunteer driven, non-profit organization that raises money and awareness for initiatives that encourage effective, and sustainable ways of challenging poverty.
Embassy officials and FFP founders decided the event should go on and it did.
Organizers briefly spoke about the Paris attacks and held a moment of silence.
FOX 5's Will Thomas served as emcee for the gala.
