ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale honored Lauren Hill and Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still and his daughter Leah at his gala Friday night.
After Lauren's death on April 10, Vitale announced on Twitter that he would pledge $250,000 in Hill's honor. Lauren's parents, Brent and Lisa, as well as Mount St. Joseph's head coach, Dan Benjamin, attended the event.
The Hills posed with Still and his fiance before accepting the grant from Vitale.
The gala is an annual event to help raise money for the V Foundation in honor of late basketball coach Jim Valvano. Proceeds from the event help fund pediatric research.
