Patrick Peterson’s Time To Give Back

When Patrick Peterson steps on the field, he doesn’t like to give an inch to opposing wide receivers, but the Cardinals’ star cornerback was feeling much more generous on Monday night. 

With an apron slipped over his neck and tied around his waist, Peterson served a four-course meal to dinner guests at his inaugural Celebs and Steaks Dinner at Donovan’s Chop and Steakhouse in Phoenix. Peterson was joined by coach Bruce Arians, team president Michael Bidwill and several teammates at the charity event.

The proceeds from the tickets and auctioned off memorabilia benefitted the Patrick Peterson Foundation for Success, aimed at improving the lives of underprivileged youth.

“Hopefully it’s going to get some great donations for the foundation to get it going in the right, positive direction,” Peterson said.  “We’re definitely looking to help some kids that are in dire need of some help. It’s the first annual, and I’m very excited about it.”

The night began with a cocktail reception as the players and coaches mingled with guests before they were put to work as waiters. Autographed items from Cardinals and Diamondbacks players were on display for the silent auction before the dinner, and a live auction was held after.

Peterson helped out at a similarly-themed event put on by wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald as a rookie, which gave him the idea. Fitzgerald was among the Cardinals players in attendance, along with Tyrann Mathieu, Antonio Cromartie, Frostee Rucker, Lorenzo Alexander, Sam Acho, Calais Campbell, Carson Palmer, Dan Williams and Rashad Johnson. Cornerbacks coach Kevin Ross also helped out.

“It means a lot go have those guys out here, supporting not only me but the cause,” Peterson said. “I’m just happy to have those guys out here to spread some fun and happiness around here today.”
