Dick Vitale Raises $250K in Honor of Lacey Holsworth

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIMay 16, 2014

Michigan State fan Lacey Holsworth and friend of former Spartans star Adreian Payne sadly lost her battle with cancer back in April, and Dick Vitale has been hard at work trying to raise money for pediatric cancer to honor her.

Vitale's goal was to raise $250,000 before his annual gala, which is tonight. Thanks to a late push, Vitale has successfully raised the money, and he posted a picture on Instagram to thank everyone that helped raise the money, saying:

I am jumping with JOY / THANK YOU THANK YOU. - We have the 250 K for @AdorableLacey AWESOME BABY #DVGala2014 @jksports @espnmikes

Well done, Mr. Vitale.
