Larry Fitzgerald and Friends: Morton’s Celebrity Waiter Night – to Benefit The Carol Fitzgerald Memorial Fund

We know that Arizona Cardinals’ superstar Larry Fitzgerald can leap high in the air for clutch touchdowns to help get his team into the Super Bowl, but can he serve 166 steaks to hungry guests in one night? — Probably not without the help of his friends.

Morton’s The Steakhouse is pleased to announce the Larry Fitzgerald and Friends: Morton’s Celebrity Waiter Night, an exclusive fund raising event that will take place at Morton’s The Steakhouse in Scottsdale on Monday, August 24, 2009, beginning at 6 p.m. The evening, hosted by Arizona Cardinals’ announcers Ron Wolfley and Paul Calvisi, will feature top Phoenix professional athletes, including Larry’s Cardinals’ teammates serving a lavish dinner to guests as well as a live and silent auction, all to benefit the Carol Fitzgerald Memorial Fund.

“I’m thrilled that Morton’s is partnering with me on what will be a really fantastic evening,” said Larry Fitzgerald. “My fellow teammates and friends will have their work cut out for them as first-time waiters, and our guests will have a truly great time, all in the name of the Carol Fitzgerald Memorial Fund, a charity that means so much to me and my family.”

The Carol Fitzgerald Memorial Fund was set up in the memory of Larry’s mother, who throughout her career as a state worker in Minnesota had helped victims of AIDS, breast cancer and other diseases. This fund’s proceeds continue her work, and the Carol Fitzgerald Memorial Foundation also supports the education of Urban Youth. Morton’s goal for the evening is to raise at least $75,000 for the fund.

“As an Arizona Cardinals fan for more than 40 years, I am so privileged to have Morton’s host this event honoring Larry Fitzgerald’s mom,” said Roger Drake, Chief Communications Officer for Morton’s The Steakhouse. “This is an extraordinary opportunity for our guests to be served an exceptional dinner by Larry and his friends, including many of the NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals’ top players, all for a great cause.”

Tickets for this exclusive event are $250 (booths seating 4 and tables seating 8 are also available) and can be purchased by calling Morton’s The Steakhouse in Scottsdale, 15233 N. Kierland Blvd., at 480-951-4440.
