The Peete’s hope to raise a great deal of money for their Hollyrod Foundation, established in 1992. For the past nine years, the couple has hosted a party in whatever host city the Super Bowl landed, with proceeds going to their foundation. They have raised anywhere from $250,000 to $2 million in previous years.The Hollyrod Foundation provides medical, physical and emotional support for those suffering from debilitating life circumstances, including Parkinson’s Disease. Another charity that will benefit from the weekend events will be Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center. The Peete’s oldest son has autism.
