Back Brad: A Fundraiser to Support Local Leader Brad Newman

100 Men Who Care, in collaboration with Prescott Area Women Who Care, is hosting a community fundraiser to help the financial needs of Yavapai Exceptional Industry’s Executive Director Emeritus Brad Newman, who suffered a stroke last year.

Brad Newman has been a leader in YEI for over 40 years and has created countless job opportunities for those with disabilities throughout Arizona. His passion for helping others and dedication to his job have inspired many within the community.

“Those who know Brad, love Brad. He has been a big part of this community for more than 40 years. He was first to step up when someone needed a hand, and now it’s our time to step in and give him one,” stated Ron Fain of Fain Signature Group, who leads the 100 Men Who Care organization.

“This event is an incredible opportunity to support an amazing man who has lived a life of selfless service while enjoying fellowship, some food and drinks with friends who all have a connection to Brad,” stated 100 Men Who Cares board member Patrick Kuykendall. “Everyone is welcome, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting Brad Newman as he continues fighting through his recovery!”  

The event will take place on Thursday, May 18, 2023, at 5:00 pm behind COLT Grill in Prescott Valley on the Town Center turf park, with live music by Road One South. It will be an evening of music, food, and fundraising, with all proceeds going towards Brad’s recovery and future care. Brad’s family and community members will speak and provide stories about his recovery and his tireless service to the community. The goal is to raise $50,000+ and Bring Brad Back home to Prescott, where he can continue his care. 

Tickets are $100 per person and includes food donated by Rosa’s of Prescott Valley, and live music by Road One South. There will be a cash bar. Attendees will also have an opportunity to bid on handmade picnic tables and planters by the workers at YEI and other items donated by generous contributors during the live auction. All monies raised will go towards providing a home for Brad where he can get care and also help with his medical and insurance costs.

The event is supported by 100 Men Who Care, Prescott Area Women Who Care, Rosa’s Pizzeria in Prescott Valley, The Fain Family Foundation, and Helken & Horn Advertising Agency.
