Mix and mingle with sports figures and celebrities. This is definitely an evening you don’t want to miss.
Marconi Foundation for Kids
The Marconi Automotive Museum and Foundation for Kids strives to reach its goal of helping to raise a million dollars a year for at risk youth in Orange County. A large percentage of net proceeds generated from special events and tours are donated to local children’s charities. Founder Dick Marconi has a mantra that he gives to all groups he addresses. That mantra is “learn, earn and return.” As his father before him said, first you learn by getting a good education, then you go out into the community and earn, and then you start to give back, perhaps in small ways to begin with, and as you reach retirement years, start giving in more significant ways. And that’s exactly what he’s done. Dick is known as one of the great philanthropists in Orange County, California.
Our Charity Partner
Caterina’s Club focuses on feeding, housing and educating at-risk children of Orange County. The organization started from humble beginnings with Mama Caterina, CNN Hero Bruno Serato’s mother. In 2005 Bruno and his mother visited the Boys and Girls Club of Anaheim where his mother noticed a 6-year old boy eating potato chips for dinner. Caterina insisted that Bruno make the boy a plate of pasta instead and so began Bruno’s journey of feeding the ‘motel kids’ near Disneyland and harnessing the power of pasta to feed the needy.
"I am blessed to be able to support a number of non-profit organizations in our community — Paul Folinoincluding attending nearly 10 galas or special events on a yearly basis and “Fight Night” is absolutely my favorite. And where else can you go and watch an exciting sporting event; enjoy one of the most amazing car museums in Southern California; and all on behalf of so many needy children and families in our community who really need our help, love, and support?” ~Paul Folino
“2015 was our first ever “Fight Night”, and you can be assured that we will never miss this event again. — Dean and Laurie GrayThe entertainment, the auction prizes, the culinary experience and the fights were nothing short of spectacular. This is an event that should be on everyone’s “bucket list” for those looking for a good time while raising money for a great cause. To top the evening off, my wife and I even went home with a brand new puppy from the live auction.” ~Dean and Laurie Gray
