Supporting the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center
April 12, 2014
Each spring, the Celebrity Fight Night Foundation presents an amazing gala in Phoenix to raise funds for charity. Celebrity Fight Night's primary beneficiary is the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center (MAPC) and Movement Disorder Clinic at Barrow Neurological Institute.
The MAPC is a comprehensive resource center that complements Barrow’s clinical care with educational, recreational and support programs for patients and their families. The MAPC may be the largest support network in the country for patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
“Celebrity Fight Night’s ongoing support makes a tremendous difference for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center,” says Abraham Lieberman, MD, director of the MAPC. “Their support is the backbone of so much of what we do—from education and exercise programs to support groups, the Parkinson Registry and Ali Care. Without the yearly contribution from Celebrity Fight Night Foundation, we would be unable to offer all that we do.”
A host of entertainers, celebrities and professional athletes from around the country join Muhammad and Lonnie Ali for the annual gala. The event includes amazing silent and live auctions, a gourmet dinner and a dazzling show.
Jimmy Walker is the founder of the Celebrity Fight Night Foundation. The 2013 event was held March 23 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge and raised money for the MAPC at Barrow, as well as several other charities.
Celebrity Fight Night 2014 is scheduled for April 12. Please check back regularly for additional announcements regarding the event! For more information, visit
