Garth Brooks will attend a fundraiser for his Teammates for Kids foundation at Michael Dominick's Steakhouse near Phoenix, AZ next Friday, November 9. The organization works with professional athletes to raise money for children's charities. The Arizona Republic reports this event is being held in memory of Michael Beninato , who died last May, leaving behind his wife and their 7-year-old triplets.
Garth gives a big shout-out to the athletes helping with the event, and to the restaurant for hosting the dinner. He says, "It just goes to show you that you don’t have to be an athlete to be a teammate. All you have to do is have a desire to better the life of a child in need.”
Proceeds from this particular event will benefit the Child Life Zone at Phoenix Children's Hospital.
