Proceeds from the evening benefit the Patrick Peterson Foundation for Success, whose mission is to provide inner city youth and Title I schools with books and educational resources so that they may reach their full potential. The evening was a night to remember as the foundation exceeded their goals and raised over 250,000 dollars.

The Foundation was started in 2013 with its goal to make an impact on the lives of more than 30,000 at-risk Arizona youth by the end of 2015. For more information please visit patrickpeterson.org.
