Dick Vitale Raises $250K in Honor of Lacey Holsworth


Say what you want about college basketball broadcaster and sports culture icon Dick Vitale, his dedication to helping those in need has always been one of his most noble traits.

Vitale came through again, and in grand fashion.

A young Michigan State fan and cancer patient, Lacey Holsworth, sadly lost her battle with the disease in April, prompting Vitale to take up her cause before his annual gala, which happens this evening.

 

The voice of college basketball has become the voice of Lacey Holsworth, as Vitale was able to raise the $250,000 he set as the goal for Lacey’s cause. The jubilant Vitale gave one of his trademark tweets in response to the support.  

  Awesome, baby is right. And thank you Dick.
