Celebrities at the 7th Annual Dick Vitale Gala

Dick Vitale GalaDick Vitale, Erin Andrews, John Calipari, Lou Holtz and the list goes on and on of guests that will be attending the Dick Vitale 7th Annual Gala for The V Foundation.

You know whom I would be excited to see? St. John’s men’s basketball coach, Steve Lavin. This past year he had prostate cancer and is now cancer free. I want to know about his journey.

Or what about Olivia Hamilton? Olivia is a 4th grader at Sperry Elementary and as of January 11, 2012, she completed a 108-week treatment plan for Leukemia. I want to hear about her life in remission and see her dog, Sammy, is up to. 

Or maybe Jacob Raleigh? He plays tennis and is currently a sophomore in high school. He stated that because his cancer is so rare, without research he would have no hope for a cure. I want to know what it’s like to play tennis with one arm.

These are just a few of the celebrities you will find at the 7th Annual Dick Vitale Gala. Oh, and there will be some basketball and football coaches as well.
