ESPN RADIO's "MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING" received a proclamation from NEW YORK Mayor MICHAEL BLOOMBERG today (7/11) declaring the week of JULY 8-14 as "THE V FOUNDATION 'DON'T GIVE UP... DON'T EVER GIVE UP!' WEEK," commemorating the network's charity drive raising money for cancer research through the organization founded by ESPN and legendary college basketball coach and announcer JIM VALVANO. The proclamation was presented at the show's live broadcast from NEW YORK's ESPN ZONE this morning.
The network and its O&O stations held an auction of sports items all day today, and the 2007 ESPY CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC at INDUSTRY HILLS, CA on TUESDAY (7/10) raised a record $1.3 million.
