made a huge difference in the lives of thousands in the Valley of the Sun and worldwide through the Carol Fitzgerald Memorial Fund, organizations like Sabathani Community Center in Minneapolis, and the Plano Vision Development Center in Chicago.

Fitzgerald’s celebrity and love of travel has taken him around the world on missions with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, delivering state-of-the-art hearing devices for children and adults, and the NFL’s “Crucial Catch” screening campaign to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society.

He traveled to East Africa in March with Oxfam America providing aid digging wells and delivering much-needed supplies. Fitzgerald learned at an early age from his loving, hard-working, dedicated parents, Mr. and Mrs. Larry and Carol Fitzgerald, that nothing comes easy. And put yourself in another’s place, for the world is constituted on the basis of harmony. Everything works in cooperation with something else.

Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all achievement in real life grow. It’s through cooperation, not conflict, that you’ll achieve your greatest success.

Fitzgerald bought in and has shown he knows how to lead and win with the help of many, including celebrities like Lou Gossett Jr., Cris Carter, Michael Irvin, Kurt Warner, Eric Dickerson, Head Coach Bruce Arians, Arizona Cardinals’ Carson Palmer, Darnell Dockett, Calais Campbell, Andre Roberts, Jay Feely, Michael Floyd, Lyle Sendlein, Luis Gonzales, Alan Anderson and others.

It was all well worth it. The live auction and silent auctions included priceless value on sports and entertainment memorabilia. Thanks greatly to the four hundred invited guests who jammed Morton’s in Scottsdale and gave from their hearts of time and money to support Fitz’s Supper Club Celebrities at your service.

As a journalist who just happens to be Larry’s and Marcus’s father, again thank you all for your continued sincere love and support of our family.
