Vitale will be joined by a number of other ESPN celebrated sports personalities including Nick Bollettieri, Lou Holtz, Chris Berman, Doris Burke and Howie Schwab, subject to availability.
The program opens with a Q&A and welcome reception with the sports personalities and concludes with a star-studded luau prepared by Hawaiian fusion chef Roy Yamaguchi of Roy’s Restaurants. During the stay, guests will join the sports personalities and players for championship golf and tennis. Says Vitale: “Fun in the sun, playing golf and tennis, hitting the beach, and helping The V Foundation battle cancer–sounds like a perfect vacation to me. The Four Seasons Resort in Maui puts the ‘awe’ in awesome, baby!”
