Dust off the bleach bottle and give your whites a whitening: The iconic Drake Hotel will be the scene of a fashion show and charity event on July 25—but only those dressed in white will be allowed to attend.

The party is the brainchild of events producer Javaris Stevenson and is being called an All-White Soiree. It will include a fashion show featuring looks for men and women, passed snacks, live music and and a one-hour open bar. Additionally, the first 150 guests will receive a gift bag. According to the comments on this Meetup post about the Soiree, Stevenson expects some "previous NFL players" to be in attendance. Note: All this swankiness can be yours for the ticket price of $55.

Proceeds from the event will benefit A Silver Lining Foundation; entry can be purchased in advance here.
