Jim Calhoun to be Feted at Dick Vitale Gala in May

Jim Calhoun will be honored at this year's 8th annual Dick Vitale Gala on Friday, May 17 at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, Fla.

Others honored at the event will include Bill Self and Bobby Bowden. Should be a nice birthday gift for Calhoun, who'll turn 71 a week earlier.

Net proceeds from the event will be awarded to pediatric cancer research and related programs through The V Foundation. Last year, the Gala raised a record $2.1 million, bringing the total of funds raised to $8.6 million since the event's inception in 2006. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are now available. A raffle drawing for a Mars Red Mercedes E350A convertible will also occur during the Gala. Tickets for the raffle are $100 and winners do not need to be in attendance for the drawing.

More information about The V Foundation and the Eighth Annual Dick Vitale Gala is provided in the attached press release. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or visit
