‘Magic’ Night in Store for Fitzgerald & Friends
By Frontdoors Staff
It’s no illusion: Larry Fitzgerald is one of the most generous guys in the National Football League.
The Cardinals legend is also a big fan of magic who has seen illusionist Criss Angel perform and who calls magician David Blaine is “pretty special.”
“I’m fascinated with it,” he told Frontdoors. “I’ve always been a big fan of magic, I think it’s so intriguing.”
That’s why he is asking friends to join him at Dominick’s Steakhouse on August 28th for The Grand Illusion, his 9th Annual Fitz’s Supper Club – Celebrities at YOUR Service, where celebrity servers, fundraising and magic await fans and friends.
Trickery, wonderment and excitement will fill the restaurant as Fitzgerald’s teammates (including Carson Palmer and Patrick Peterson), Hall of Fame NFL players, and other celebrity friends serve a four-course dinner and spirits. Proceeds from the night will benefit the Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund.
“We’re very excited; it’s going to be a great event. “Jeff Mastro, co-owner of Dominick’s Steakhouse and Steak 44, told Frontdoors. “This is our fourth year doing this and every year the entertainment is a little bit different. This one, with the magic theme is very different so it’s going to be exciting. I think everyone’s going to love it.”
The Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund has been supporting kids and their families with significant gifts of time, money and special resources through associations across the country. For his role in helping others, Fitzgerald won the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award in 2017.
“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,” Fitzgerald said. “It starts with our sponsors, donors, celebrities, friends, and family and ends with a bit of magic.”
