Mother’s Day Surprise for Single Mom and Boys
Sandra is expecting to have the “best Mother’s Day ever” this year after receiving the surprise of a lifetime walking into her home purchased with the help of Habitat for Humanity of Central AZ. Squeals of delight could be heard from 7-year old twin boys Bobby and Roman as they commented on everything they saw as they toured their home with Kurt and Brenda, along with their mom and 14 year old brother Raheem. “A new TV with something playing!” “We have couches!” “The kitchen is full of food including Oreos!” “They got us everything!” The boys didn’t miss a thing as they absorbed their surroundings provided by a Homes for the Holidays team effort from Aaron’s, U-Haul, R&S Mattress and First Things First. A teary-eyed Sandra, overwhelmed by her fully furnished home, quietly summed it up by saying, “I have no words. It’s incredible. I could have never done this on my own.” To watch a news story covering the event, click here.
Since 2006 First Things First has been hosting families from wish granting organizations like Make A Wish and Dream Factory for a week-long trip to Orlando hosted by Kurt, Brenda and their seven dwarfs creating an extended “Disney Family.” And like all families, reunions are fun times to reconnect, reflect and reminisce. Families from the Southwest region representing 10 years of trips to Florida joined the Warner family for a pool party in Scottsdale to do just that with lunch provided by Carrabbas Italian Grill and frozen treats from Subzero Ice Cream.

Fans Played with the Pros at the Ultimate Football Experience Presented by Pringles & Cheez-It!
The thirteenth annual Ultimate Football Experience Presented by Pringles & Cheez-It held March 11 & 12 in Phoenix, AZ featured weekend gridiron warriors competing on teams sponsored by Kellogg (3), PetRays, Prosource, R&S Mattress, U-Haul, and more. Participants took to the field at the AZ Cardinals training facility with celebrities of the past, present and future for a 4-on-4 flag football tournament. This year’s celebrity line-up included: Reggie Bush, Larry Fitzgerald, Carson Palmer, Patrick Peterson, Drew Stanton, Tyrod Taylor, Ladainian Tomlinson, Michael Vick, Jameis Winston, and of course Kurt Warner. PetRays quarterbacked by Tyrod Taylor took home the championship defeating Team 13 quarterbacked by the host himself, Kurt Warner. But the real winners are those served by FTF with nearly $240K raised! It was a team effort once again and First Things First would like to thank everyone involved.
