Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Jul 18, 2017 - There are over 36,000 homeless people in the state of Arizona, with over half of them in Maricopa county alone. In addition, there is a 1000% increase in pediatric homeless. With numbers like these, it’s crucial for all members of the community to do what they can for those in need, especially during these extreme summer temps.
For the 11th consecutive year, Nick Lowery and his foundation’s Champions for the Homeless are teaming up with St. Vincent DePaul, in this case for the 2nd annual Christmas in Summer, to do their part in giving back where it matters most. Lowery and St Vincent de Paul’s CEO Steve Zabilski agree, “This 33rd Champions event continues to help redefine real success in life.” Nick is always joined by many great NFL Legends and several Miss Arizonas will also attend this year, along with a Special VIP Co-emcee, Donna D’Errico, best known for her Baywatch starring role.
Together, this group of athletes and celebrities and close to 200 volunteers are redefining Giving in the heart of the summer, and will serve an amazing Christmas dinner to over 1400 of Phoenix homeless. Those who come will also be given gift cards, other need items like socks, underwear and water, more than 1000 flowers, and will have a special meet and greet with all athletes. Donna and Nick and the hundreds of homeless guests and volunteers will be entertained by the Champions for the Homeless Band, led by The Rhythm Room’s Blues legends Bob Corritore, Paris James, Dave Riley, Jimmie ‘Primetime’ Smith, as well as Cece Ya and keyboardist Les Paul Roque.
