Twenty-one DCs in the Phoenix area, affiliated with First Chiropractic Health Centers, raised money to benefit the charity Hopelink for the Homeless to buy Thanksgiving dinners.

Phoenix's John Stevenson bid $2,250 for the tickets (originally valued at $225 a piece), a bid that alone provided 1,490 Thanksgiving meals for Hopelink.
