13th Annual Dick Vitale Gala


The 12th Annual Dick Vitale Gala was a smash success, raising millions for pediatric cancer research! We already can't wait for the 2018 Gala, set for Friday, May 11 at The Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota.

The 13th Annual Dick Vitale Gala will honor 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.

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.

Join us at the Gala!
