14th Annual Dick Vitale Gala


Thanks to everyone who helped make the 13th Annual Dick Vitale another smashing success! It was a record-setting year, as $3.7 million was raised for pediatric cancer research!

Dick honored University of Michigan Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh, ESPN Television and Radio star Mike Greenberg and Florida State University Head Men's Basketball Coach Leonard Hamilton.

We are already excited about the 14th Annual Dick Vitale Gala, set for Friday, May 10, 2019. Dick is set to honor Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney, ESPN broadcaster Chris Fowler and University of Alabama men's basketball head coach 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.
