Stars and athletes from around the country converged at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix on April 9, 2016 for Celebrity Fight Night XXII, an all-star evening in honor of featured guest, Muhammad Ali. Celebrities and professional athletes from all over the U.S. united for an action-packed night filled with incredible live auction items and musical performances by many of today’s brightest stars. Celebrating its 22nd year, the Celebrity Fight Night gala is held to raise money to benefit the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at Barrow Neurological Institute, along with numerous other charities. In 1994, long-time Arizona resident and businessman, Jimmy Walker, founded Celebrity Fight Night in hopes of raising money for local charities through this premier event. Over the years, Celebrity Fight Night has raised more than $118 million.
