Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee, NFL donate $25K to Boys & Girls Clubs

Oct 28, 2022, 7:55 AM

The National Football League and Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee announced on Wednesday the donation of $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of the Valley, according to a press release.

The funds will be used to cover the branch’s flag football program for the year, which consists of 275 boys and girls.

On Wednesday, host committee executive chair and Arizona Cardinals legend Larry Fitzerald, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and host committee president and CEO Jay Parry played football at the Phoenix branch.

They also spoke to the 175 kids in attendance.

“The Super Bowl is not just a game,” Goodell said in the release. “People remember the experience, including the community efforts that leave a lasting impact.”

Goodell also surprised Boys and Girls Club staff member Michael Luck with a pair of tickets to Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium on Feb. 12, 2023.

Luck was a former club participant before becoming one of the branch’s flag football coaches.

“Seeing the positive influence Super Bowl LVII has on Arizona residents is part of what makes hosting Super Bowl so special,” Parry said in the release.

“Plus, tossing the football around with NFL great Larry Fitzgerald and Commissioner Goodell is a memory the kids will have for a lifetime.”
