Here are the night's big winners:

Roberts broke the record for most money raised by a competitor. 

"I genuinely just believe in this program so much and so it was an easy ask. Every time I would ask, they would just flood me with donations and as you can see I've set a huge new record which is overwhelming," Roberts said. 

Roberts said she has been overwhelmed with gratitude and love while raising money for the cause.

"Honestly, it's nothing I've done, it's the support of the community and the amazing work that Matt and Kena are doing," Roberts said.
