Ryan Kerrigan Celebrates the Launch of the Positive Impact Fund by Hosting Annual Celebrity Waiter Night

On Monday night, Ryan Kerrigan and his Blitz for the Better Foundation celebrated the successful launch of the Positive Impact Fund by hosting the annual Celebrity Waiter Night presented by Marc and Shaza Andersen at The Watergate Hotel.  

This year’s Celebrity Waiter Night event brought to life Ryan’s vision for helping children in the metro DC area by featuring the story of the first Positive Impact Fund recipient, Caleb.   Caleb sustained hearing loss due to his chemotherapy treatments. While this is an expected outcome from this drug, it was deemed necessary to treat his neuroblastoma – a cancer that is commonly found in the adrenal glands. Through the Positive Impact Fund, Caleb and his family requested for hearing aids to be purchased.  

Thanks to Blitz for the Better Foundation supporters, Ryan and his foundation were able to purchase Caleb new hearing aids allowing him to hear in a close to normal range.   In addition to sharing Caleb’s story, Bo Menkiti, Founder and CEO of The Menkiti Group, spoke about the foundation’s initial success with the Positive Impact Fund: “I am proud to help transform the lives of families served by the Positive Impact Fund. These kids that the Positive Impact Fund serves are tougher than the linebackers on the stage tonight.”  

Bo and The Menkiti Group jumpstarted the funds for the Positive Impact Fund last year by donating $25,000. In addition to mixing and mingling with Ryan and his fellow linebackers, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception sponsored by The Riley Family and Wireless Buybacks LLC and exciting live auction items.  

Over $120,000 was raised in support of Ryan and his Blitz for the Better Foundation to continue building the Positive Impact Fund.

Toby Knapp of iHeartMedia served as the evening’s emcee, while Matt Rogers served as the evening’s auctioneer.
