15th Annual Dick Vitale Gala
The 15th Annual Dick Vitale Gala is already on the horizon! Join us on May 8, 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 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."
