A Knockout Event

| July 7, 2016 | Parties

THE PARTY Celebrity Fight Night’s 22nd celeb-filled Phoenix event once again pulled no punches. THE GUESTS More than 1,000 elegantly dressed guests gathered for the main event—all in support of the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at Barrow Neurological Institute. The late Muhammad Ali and his wife Lonnie, Kurt Warner, Bo Derek, Larry Fitzgerald, Gabrielle Giffords, Robert Kennedy Jr., and Larry and Shawn King were among the famous guests. Dr. Francis Yeoh, Yank Barry, Carrie Underwood and the Argyros family were honorees. THE HIGHLIGHTS Entertainment flowed all evening with the likes of superstar performer Underwood, The Tenors, comedian Sinbad, Brooks & Dunn, Andy Kim and musical director David Foster. Reba McEntire returned for her 11th year as emcee. Aside from the cocktail reception and elegant dinner, a luxurious live auction offered a weekend with the Kennedy family in Hyannis Port, an Italian vacation and dinner with Andrea Bocelli, two seats at Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebration and dinner with McEntire at her home in Nashville, Tenn. The event raised $5.3 million. –Photos by Carrie Evans Photography and Getty Images
