14th Annual Dick Vitale Gala
Dick Vitale has done it again! The 14th Annual Dick Vitale Gala set another record for the event, raising more than $4.3 million for pediatric cancer research.
At this year's Gala, Dick honored Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney, ESPN broadcaster Chris Fowler and former NBA and college head coach, as well as NBA Champion player Avery Johnson. Vitale also recognized two special guests with the John Saunders V Foundation Courage Award. ESPN talents Holly Rowe and Lee Corso were honored for their dedication to raising awareness and funds for cancer research.
The mission of the Dick Vitale Gala is to raise funds for premiere pediatric cancer research across the nation while simultaneously promoting awareness of pediatric cancer and how devastating it is to our children and their families. As in prior years, net funds raised are utilized for the best research nationwide so that one day no child will have to experience this horrific disease.
