Mike Brey To Be Honored At Ninth Annual Dick Vitale Gala

Mike Brey wil be honored alongside Nick Saban and Tom Crean on May 16 at the Dick Vitale Gala in Sarasota, Fla.

March 7, 2014

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame men's basketball coach Mike Brey has long been a staunch supporter in the fight against cancer and his longtime standing with Coaches vs. Cancer Program certainly exemplifies that as well as the more than $2 million dollars that he and his wife Tish have raised for the South Bend/Michiana community over the past 14 years.

On Friday evening, May 16 at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, Fla., Brey will be honored alongside Alabama head coach football Nick Saban and Indiana men's basketball coach Tom Crean at the ninth annual Dick Vitale Gala that benefits The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Net proceeds from event will be awarded to pediatric cancer research and related programs through The V Foundation.

Last year's Dick Vitale Gala raised more than $1.7 million for pediatric cancer research, bringing the event's total to more than $10 million in its eight-year history. The event routinely draws notable celebrities from the world of sports and entertainment, including many NCAA men's basketball coaches.

The evening will begin with a "Celebrity Meet & Greet Private Pre-Party" at 6:30 p.m. and include after-party entertainment featuring the Four Tops, an American vocal quartet. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are now available. Individual tickets start at $1,000 and sponsorship opportunities at $5,000.

A raffle drawing for a 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLA V-edition will occur during the Gala. Tickets for the raffle are offered at a suggested $100 minimum donation. The car includes many special features including custom seating with a light gray base seat, red stitching and gray suede inserts, customized stitched headrests, custom colored wheels, an aluminum badge engraved with Dick Vitale's signature and more.
