Davis Islands, Florida -- The DeBartolo Family Foundation held its 11th All Star Charity Gala to raise money for our community.
The event raised almost $800,000 for the Debartolo Family Foundation which helps high school students receive scholarships, families receive help during the Christmas and the holidays and even supports buying school supplies for teachers.
The star-studded event included dozens of well known athletes including Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, All Pro Bucs Ronde Barber, Vincent Jackson, Derrick Brooks, Warrick Dunn, Davin Joseph, Shelton Quarles, Rays Manger Joe Maddon and celebrity chefs Tyler Florence and Scott Conant. 700 people packed The Hangar at Peter O'Knight Airport on Davis Islands.
Since 2001, the DeBartolo Family Foundation has given hope to many less fortunate individuals and groups in the Tampa Bay area and beyond. The devotion to our community remains steadfast and strong.
