Faith Fight Finish 2023 Gala

The Faith Fight Finish Foundation Gala 2023 presented by White Rhino Coffee was a wonderful night celebrating all the work that our founder, NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year,  Dak has accomplished through the 4 pillars of our foundation: colon cancer research, mental health & suicide prevention, bridging the gap between law enforcement, youth and the communities they serve, and offering assistance to those facing life-challenging hardships. 
This year the foundation awarded the Thomas Family with the 2023 UPS “Game Changer mAward” for their incredible work with their foundation The Defensive Line that aims to end the epidemic of youth suicide. 

Dak’s aunt Valrie “Nanny” was the recipient of the foundations inaugural “Caregiver” award and she accepted it on behalf of all their family members who have come together to care for each other in the toughest times.

Justin Sylvestor brought the laughs as our host an Coffey Anderson kicked off the night playing great songs at our VIP reception! We are so thankful to the generosity in the room during our live auction!

And we got to end the night with the Amazing HARDY! Fresh off his 4 ACMA wins, he captivated us with a very special powerful musical set and we are so grateful to him for donating his time and talent to FFF! 
It was a truly a magical night, all in the name of changing and saving lives! Thank you again to White Rhino Coffee for their kindness always and to all our donors and friends that showed up to support our work! We are beyond grateful!
