Project Beautiful - Inside and Out was thrilled to be the Concours d'Elegance of America's Saturday luncheon charity partner for a third year in a row!  Over the past three years, the Concours has raised over $22,000 for Project Beautiful - Inside and Out!  

This year, we were honored to have join us Edee Franklin, founder of Sanctum House, one of our 2017  20,000 Smiles Program grant recipients, receiving $2000.  Their mission is to provide a sanctuary for women survivors of human trafficking.  Board President, Nancy Salvia, surprised Edee with another $2000 donation to Sanctum House!
