By FOX 10 News Staff
There was plenty of star power at Celebrity Fight Night in Phoenix. Saturday night's event was one of the biggest charity events in the country.
The stars walked to red carpet at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa.
The annual event honors Muhammad Ali. In its 18 years, more than $80 million has been raised. Most of it goes to the Muhammad Ali Parkinson's Center.
"You got to support the champ. Support the champ, support people who go through this horrific disease, what they do for one night, it's unbelievable," says Kevin Sorbo.
"I think it's a great cause, a lot of friends are here," says Steve Martin.
"The people are wonderful, it's for him and Lonnie and their amazing quest to put an end to this terrible disease," says Billy Crystal.
Some of the auction items included dinner with emcee Reba McEntire at her Beverly Hills home -- dinner with Billy Crystal and Robert DeNiro -- VIP tickets to a Paul McCartney concert -- dinner with Andrew Bocelli in Tuscany, Italy -- and a round of golf with Phil Mickelson at The Bridges in Philadelphia.
