As many of you know, my parents started a nonprofit called Living Hope Ministries, and the work this organization does means the world to me. Every summer I travel to Nigeria with a group of doctors and nurses who provide medical care to those who need it.

I have seen a lot accomplished on these trips, but realistically there’s only so much that can be done in two weeks. The people I’ve met in this part of Nigeria need a hospital they can go to, without waiting for another group to arrive. Because of this I’m working with LHM to raise $2 million to build a hospital that will provide ongoing medical care to these people I’ve come to know and love.

As many of you also know, I LOVE throwing parties. So I’m excited to host a party that will benefit LHM, the second annual Hope for Life Celebrity Auction and Fashion Show. Join me, along with teammates from the Cardinals, players from the Diamondbacks, and other celebrities for an awesome MoTown themed party. It will take place on December 9 from 6-9pm at the Ritz Carlton in Phoenix (download the flyer here).

What can you expect? Expect food, fun, and fantastic items that will be auctioned off to raise money for my foundation in Africa.

A limited number of individual General Admission tickets are available through Eventbrite. For table reservations, as well as sponsorship and underwriting opportunities, please contact Karina Ybarra at 602-710-4281 or

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime party you won’t want to miss!
