Unique Fundraiser Returns to Support Treasure House for Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities
GLENDALE, Arizona (December 3, 2018) – They teamed up to change Arizona sports forever during Hall of Fame caliber careers. Now, they’re getting back together at one of the Valley’s most unique and fun-filled fundraising events.
Hall of Fame Quarterback Kurt Warner and wife Brenda will honor legendary Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald at their second annual Celebrity Game Night on February 15.
Kurt and Brenda are honoring Fitzgerald for his incredible impact both on and off the field, and will be joined by celebrities as well as current and former professional athletes at this premier event.
The event promises not to be the same old stodgy fundraiser — instead, it will be full of game room favorites giving attendees a chance to mingle, play and compete. The program will feature some of Arizona’s favorite celebrities competing in highly entertaining game shows and interactive contests. The highlight of the evening will be a special tribute to Larry Fitzgerald, including an in-depth conversation about his life and career.
Kurt and Brenda are raising money for their most passionate cause — Treasure House, a supportive living environment where young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities can participate in their community, achieve independence, and realize their purpose. It’s going to be a great evening benefiting a very worthy cause.
“We’re very pleased to recognize Larry for all he has contributed to our community both as a football player and as a philanthropist,” said Kurt Warner. “Larry’s talent is matched only by his character, and I’m just as grateful for our friendship as I am for the time we spent together on the playing field. It’s our honor to shine the spotlight on Larry’s accomplishments while supporting the great work being done at Treasure House.”
Last year, more than 420 people attended the inaugural event honoring Phoenix Coyotes legend Shane Doan, raising well into six figures for Treasure House. The 2018 version of the event included such staples as Win, Lose or Draw, Trivial Pursuit and The Price Is Right.
This year’s event will take place Friday, February 15 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at The Van Buren in downtown Phoenix. The space will be converted into a giant game room, full of favorites such as giant Jenga, pop-a-shot, air hockey and much, much more. A broad group of celebrities and athletes are expected to take part in the event. The event will also include a special VIP Reception with Kurt and Larry where attendees will have an opportunity to rub elbows and take photos with the two legendary Phoenix sports figures.
The event is presented by National Bank of Arizona and the Arizona Cardinals. A variety of sponsorship packages for this exciting and unique event are available, and include not only significant exposure at the high-profile evening but also sports memorabilia as well.
