Dick Vitale

         The Southwest Car Wash Association has announced Dick Vitale, college basketball’s top analyst and ambassador, as its 2023 convention keynote speaker.  

         Vitale called ESPN’s first-ever major NCAA basketball game — and since then over one thousand games.A wide array of national magazines, ranging from Sports Illustrated, Sport, and The Sporting News to People and Travel & Leisure have highlighted his career and life achievements.

         And, it’s not all about sports. Vitale is on the board of directors of The V Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer founded by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano. The organization has since raised over $130 million for cancer research. His work took on new meaning as Vitale faced his own lymphoma cancer scare and has recently celebrated by “ringing the bell” announcing he is cancer free.

         The SCWA 2023 Convention & EXPO will take place February 22-24, 2023 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
