Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals Visits RSPS

November 27, 2017

Larry Fitzgerald, a wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, does laudable work on and off the field. And though widely recognized for his great talents on the gridiron, what he does off the field is where his other passion lies. Larry hosts an annual fundraiser, ‘Fitz's Supper Club: Celebrities at YOUR Service,’ to raise monetary funds for his initiative, the First Down Fund. One of the live auction items this year was aptly named “Carpool with Larry” and included breakfast with Fitz at your home, carpooling the kids to school in a Rolls Royce, and a classroom visit by #11 himself. Brett Maas, parent of 3rd and 5th graders at Rancho Solano Preparatory School, generously donated to Larry’s cause and won the school visit with Mr. Fitzgerald. After breakfast, Fitz and the Maas kids arrived to the school where he visited the students' respective classrooms, answered student questions, and gave a background on the First Down Fund. The Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund supports kids and their families with significant gifts of time, money, and special resources through numerous associations. The fund also supports organizations that work to cure cancer or provide support to cancer survivors. It was an engaging event for Rancho Solano's students. 

Donating to the greater good has its benefits: the most important being the support of those less fortunate than ourselves but…sometimes you get to carpool to school with a pro football player in the backseat of a Rolls.
