All Star Charity Gala 2014


More guests than ever before packed our new location, The Hangar at Peter O’Knight Airport, on March 1st for the DeBartolo Family Foundation’s 11th All Star Charity Gala presented by Bright House Networks.

Over 700 people mingled among celebrities, including 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Derrick Brooks, coaches Joe Maddon, Lovie Smith and Derek Shelton along with Rays players Matt Joyce and Jake McGee. The highlight of the night was comedian, actor, radio host and bestselling author, Jay Mohr who performed an entertaining standup comic routine.

It was a perfect night for glamour, entertainment and of course, giving back to our community! With the generous donations of our sponsors, we brought in more than $775,000 for the Foundation.

Before Moh’rs performance, he assisted the auctioneer in raising over $75,000 on items including a trip to the 2015 Super Bowl, a trip to France, a Tiffany & Co. shopping excursion in Beverly Hills and the ever-popular Fourth of July extravaganza to the DeBartolo family’s ranch in Kalispell, MT.

To conclude the evening, the cocktail hour tent was transformed into an after-party where guests danced to DJ Samantha Ronson while snacking on chicken fingers, french fries and the delectable milk shakes provided by PDQ.
