Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Last night, Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. hosted the 13th annual Fitz’s Supper Club event presented by Dominick’s Steakhouse benefitting The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation.

The sold-out event, which integrated outstanding cuisine and live entertainment, is the foundation’s largest fundraiser each year and representatives say the evening brings together business and community leaders who share a passion for improving K-12 education and supporting the fight against breast cancer.

Mr. Fitzgerald created the foundation in 2005 in honor of his mother, Carol, who passed away from breast cancer when he was in college.

Carol Fitzgerald was a founding member of the African American Breast Cancer Alliance and was a great inspiration to Mr. Fitzgerald to always give back.

“I am humbled and grateful to see the amount of generosity displayed by everyone in attendance at this year’s Fitz’s Supper Club,” Mr. Fitzgerald said. “The investments enable The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation to drive our mission forward and create meaningful impact in our communities. I would especially like to thank Dominick’s Steakhouse for their years of partnership, and share my deep appreciation for the countless sponsors, donors and friends who have continuously supported our efforts.”

Fitz’s Supper Club donors were treated to a red-carpet arrival and VIP cocktail reception. A gourmet dinner prepared by Dominick’s Steakhouse Chef Antonio Benavidez.

“Larry Fitzgerald gives where it’s needed most in the community,” said Jeff Mastro, CEO and co-founder of the Scottsdale-based Dominick’s Steakhouse. “Just like in his playing days on the football field, when it comes to giving back, Larry always gives 100 percent. That’s just one of the reasons why we have continued to be involved and support his foundation every year with Fitz’s Supper Club at Dominick’s Steakhouse.”
