UK Coach John Calipari honored at Vitale's charity gala

SARASOTA, Fla. — Dick Vitale picked up the telephone four years ago and placed a call to Tennessee. He had a favor to ask of then-Memphis coach John Calipari. "I need your help," Vitale said. "I've got to round up 20 guys to donate fifty thousand dollars each. Gotta do it quick." Not three days later, the V Foundation was $1 million richer.
