American Eagle Foundation (AEF) president Al Cecere, the celebrity Bald Eagle ‘Challenger’ and Gretchen Cecere (Jr.) meet Donald Trump at Muhammad Ali’s “Celebrity Fight Night” in Phoenix on March 24, 2007.
The trained non-releasable eagle ambassador performed an educational free-flight at the annual Parkinson’s fundraising event during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner, which was sung by Pam Tillis.
Other guests in attendance were Muhammad Ali, Reba McEntire, Billy Crystal, Buzz Aldrin, John Elway, Steve Nash, Sharon Stone, Diana Ross, Emmitt Smith, Michael Buble, Tony Hawk, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Neil Sedaka.
This was the 3rd year that Challenger and the AEF staff have been invited to participate in the black tie charity fundraiser.
