SARASOTA - The Dick Vitale Gala raised record amounts of money for pediatric cancer research this weekend.

The Gala raised $2.8 million for the Jimmy V Foundation Friday, May 13th, at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota.

The annual event has raised more than $15 million in its eleven-year history.

Vitale always includes the top names in sports at his event. This year's gala honorees were Urban Meyer, Robin Roberts and Bo Ryan.

Vitale says his work isn't done until cancer is cured.
