It was a banner year for the The Grand Illusion at Dominick’s Steakhouse 9th Annual Fitz’s Supper Club - Celebrities at YOUR Service! Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Larry Fitzgerald brought his charm, wisdom and do-good persona out to serve guests and drum up fundraising dollars for his First Down Fund. This year’s event was stellar and raised a whopping $575,000!
Scottsdale.com was honored to cover this exciting red carpet for the third year straight and catch the arrivals as they happened at Dominick’s Steakhouse. We got the chance to chat with Illusionist Darcy Oake (we don’t know how he pulled off that card trick), Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals’ Coach Bruce Arians, Former NFL Player and NFL Analyst Seth Joyner, Arizona Cardinals’ President Michael Bidwill and Arizona Cardinals’ Wide Receiver, Brittan Golden. Other pro-ball players and philanthropists were also in attendance.
Once again, Dominick’s Steakhouse stepped up to host this outstanding event. “We are huge fans of everything Larry Fitzgerald does both on and off the field,” said Jeff Mastro, co-owner of Dominick’s Steakhouse and Steak 44. “That’s why we are proud to underwrite the entire evening and help Larry raise a record amount of fun for his First Down Fund.”
For more than a decade, the Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund has been supporting kids and their families with significant gifts of time, money and special resources through numerous associations across the country. “Every year I wonder how we are going to shatter the previous year’s success to support even more children and families in challenging positions that desperately need our help. It starts with our sponsors, donors, celebrities, friends and family and ends with a bit of magic. Join me to see what cards we have up our sleeve this year.” says Fitzgerald about Fitz’s Supper Club 2017.
