Dak Prescott‘s best character trait has to be how much he values giving back to the community. Over the years, he has not held back from his charitable endeavors and won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, too, which recognized his contributions. Prescott has been an active advocate who has continued to raise awareness against cancer, a disease to which he lost his mother Peggy to.

It was to raise awareness for this cause that the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys attended the 30th Annual Celebrity Fight Night event at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in order to raise money for cancer research. Dak Prescott attended the event with his girlfriend, Sarah Jane Ramos, at his side.

Prescott attended the event dressed in a dark pinstriped suit and a pair of glossy loafers. Sarah Jane, on the other hand, wore a gorgeous red dress. The latter posted pictures of their evening on her Instagram handle and captioned it with, “Thank you for an incredible evening,” and tagged the official handle of the event.

Apart from Dak Prescott, there were other actors, entertainers, athletes, philanthropists, and top medical professionals who raised funds for early cancer trials.
