Larry Fitzgerald Jr.’s 14 Annual Fitz’s Supper Club success in Scottsdale


The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation commemorates another year of achievement at the 14th Annual Fitz’s Supper Club, in collaboration with Dominick’s Steakhouse. This year’s event was held on Monday, April 29.

The fundraising dinner, hosted at Dominick’s Steakhouse in the Scottsdale Quarter, welcomed guests like Larry Fitzgerald, Sr.; Marcus Fitzgerald; Danielle Frost, executive director of The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation; Dominick’s Steakhouse CEO and Co-Founder Jeff Mastro and chief brand officer Oliver Badgio; Waste Management CEO John Miller; NASCAR’s Phoenix Raceway President Latasha Causey; Bell Bank Phoenix President and Arizona Banking Director Kyle Kennedy; Night Dragon CEO David DeWalt; Arizona Cardinals Owner Michael Bidwill; Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum; Former Arizona Cardinal Jamir Miller; Breast Believe Founding Partner and Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer Co-Founder Dr. Michelle Halyard; and Future Stars Founder Shereka Jackson, among others. The program was once again led by NBC New York’s Dave Price, featuring the incomparable auctioneer, Letitia Frye, and soulful musician Lamont Landers, according to a press release.

Guests indulged in a world-class dinner prepared by celebrated Dominick’s Steakhouse Chef Antonio Benavidez, which created an atmosphere of fine dining, philanthropy, and entertainment synonymous with Fitz’s Supper Club. Dave Price guided the evening, while Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. welcomed guests. Danielle Frost shared an overview of the Foundation’s remarkable progress over the last year, highlighting significant achievements, including the provision of 240 free mobile mammograms through the Breast Believe campaign and the launch of The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation Future Stars Coding Labs, which are providing STEM education in under served communities in the Valley.

The evening continued with the musical nostalgia of talented musician Lamont Landers, who captivated guests with his soulful performances. The highlight of the night was the auctions, featuring exclusive sports memorabilia, luxury travel, and unforgettable experiences, conducted by Letitia Frye. This year’s success was made possible by the generous support of sponsors, including second-year Diamond sponsor Bell Bank, and Platinum sponsors Silver Lake, Delta Airlines, and Josh Isner.

“I am deeply grateful to Jeff, Mike, the Mastro’s family and the Dominick’s Steakhouse team for their unwavering support over the years,” Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. said in the release. “Their consistent backing has been integral to the success of this event for the past 14 years. To all our amazing friends, guests, sponsors, and donors who have brought their passion and energy to this event, your contributions have made an immeasurable impact in furthering the mission of the Foundation. I am thankful for the strength of our partnerships and the sense of community we share together.”

The evening was filled with inspiring speeches, touching stories, and delicious food, all in support of The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation’s mission to support youth education and breast cancer awareness.

“The outpouring of support from our community is nothing short of inspiring,” Frost said in the release. “The continued generosity and dedication remind me of our collective strength and the beautiful people actively helping to make life better for so many. Together, we’ll continue to make a lasting impact on the lives of the people we serve.”

Fitzgerald established the Foundation in honor of his mother, Carol, who lost her battle with breast cancer during his college years. A passionate advocate for youth, education, and family welfare, she played a pivotal role as a founding member of the African American Breast Cancer Alliance. Her legacy inspired Fitzgerald to prioritize philanthropy. The funds raised will empower The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation to amplify its impact, particularly in furthering breast cancer awareness initiatives and supporting K-12 education programs.

“Larry Fitzgerald has a big place in our hearts, and we are so proud to do our part and underwrite this evening for Larry, just as we have done for many years,” Mastro said. “It’s been incredibly special to witness firsthand the impact The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation has made in our community and across the country for the last two decades.”

The Larry Fitzgerald Foundation has been dedicated to serving women, men, and families for 19 years and looks forward to serving for many years to come.
