Future Pro Football Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald continues to represent the Arizona Cardinals and the Valley with distinction.

On Monday, Fitzgerald hosted his 8th Annual Fitz's Supper Club in Dominick's Steakhouse in Scottsdale. The Supper Club is part of Fitzgerald's First Down Fund, a charity that supports families and children in crisis situations.

The theme of this year's dinner? Comedy, as evidenced by the presence of legendary comedian Sinbad. Cards coach Bruce Arians was also in attendance.

"I wanted to do something a little bit different. Last year was themed on the artistic side," Fitzgerald told ABC15's Jason Snavely.

Fitzgerald also talked about the Cardinals' preseason struggles. The Cards are 0-3 heading into Thursday night's preseason finale at home against the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos.

Fitz, however, isn't terribly concerned.

"We have a great team. We have a great nucleus of men," he said. "Obviously we're going to to play better. We have our last tune-up game on Thursday and then the real season starts, and we understand the implications."
