Dick Vitale Gala

Dick Vitale Gala

We have scheduled a new event date of September 4, 2020.  The V Foundation for Cancer Research will continue to actively monitor the spread of COVID-19 in relation to the Dick Vitale Gala. We will provide event updates based on the advice from our senior medical advisors as well as state and federal officials. The health and well-being of event attendees and our employees is our number one priority, and we will make decisions based on evolving public health concerns. Our thoughts go out to all the hard-working researchers and healthcare professionals and to anyone affected by this virus.

 

The 15th Annual Dick Vitale Gala is already on the horizon! Join us on September 4, 2020 at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota in Florida for another unforgettable evening in support of pediatric cancer research.

At next year’s Gala, Dick Vitale will honor Gonzaga University head men’s basketball coach Mark Few, ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head football coach Bruce Arians. Vitale will also recognize NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly and author, speaker and former Orlando Magic executive Pat Williams with the John Saunders Courage Award. The Gala will feature ESPN’s Kevin Negandhi as emcee and welcome best-selling author Mitch Albom as a special guest.

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 one day no child will have to experience this horrific disease."
