14th Annual Dick Vitale Gala

After a record-setting year in 2018, raising $3.7 million for pediatric cancer research, Dick is back and ready to top it at the 14th Annual Dick Vitale Gala!

This year's Gala is set for Friday, May 10. Dick will honor 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.

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.
