TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

The sixth annual "Pints for Pat" fundraiser was held at Rula Bula in Tempe on Saturday.

All the money raised went to the Pat Tillman Foundation.

"Pat was a regular customer," said Sandy Flynn of the Pat Tillman Foundation "He would come here, have pint of Guinness. He gave Steve the glass before he was deployed. It's still at bar. After his death, his friends would hang out at bar and it inspired the bar owner to start the Pints for Pat event."

This year, 1,442 limited-edition Guinness pint glasses will be sold exclusively at Rula Bula as well as a four-pack Legacy Collection featuring glasses from prior years.

Each glass is etched with the number 42 and a word that celebrates Pat's legacy. Each glass costs $10.

Saturday's fundraiser was also a kick-off event, counting down the 42 days to the 10th Annual Pat's Run.
