PHOENIX (FEBRUARY 26, 2020) — The most unique fundraising event in the Valley was a big success in its third year, as celebrities and more than 600 attendees converged on Scottsdale Hangar One for Brenda and Kurt Warner’s Celebrity Game Night on Saturday, February 22.

The third-annual event included many memorable, hilarious and touching moments as the community came together to support Treasure House, a community in Glendale founded by the Warner’s to provide a home for young adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities.

The list of celebrities and athletes in attendance included Melissa Peterman, famed actress; Chandler Jones, NFL Defensive Player of the Year; NFL All-Pro Defensive Lineman Calais Campbell; Torey Lovullo, Arizona Diamondbacks Manager; Archie Bradley, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher; David Johnson, Arizona Cardinals running back and many more.

The event honored Arizona Diamondbacks legend Luis Gonzalez, who was presented with Treasure House commemorative artwork hand-welded by Brenda Warner. And Kurt Warner made the night of dozens of attendees by providing an opportunity to catch a Hall of Fame football thrown by the former quarterback — which raised tens of thousands of dollars while providing some of the night’s most entertaining moments.

Some of this community’s most beloved current and former professional athletes helped raise money by competing in games such as “Family Feud” and “Celebrity Ping Pong,” and guests had the opportunity to win prizes while learning more about honoree Luis Gonzalez through a special tribute and in-depth interview about his life and career. The event also included a special VIP Reception with Kurt and Gonzo where attendees had an opportunity to rub elbows and take photos with the two legendary Phoenix sports figures.

Treasure House’s residents were a big part of the program, receiving a standing ovation when they were introduced during the program. The residents enjoyed meeting attendees and making the rounds at Hangar One the entire night.

“Treasure House has grown over the past three years into an organization with truly significant impact, thanks to the support of those at Celebrity Game Night and many others in our community,” said Lauri Tanner, CEO of Treasure House. “Our residents enjoyed the event immensely and the attendees were incredibly supportive of the work we’re doing to help those with cognitive and developmental disabilities. The event was not only fun, we raised the necessary funds to further the mission of Treasure House.”
