Pump Event 2021

 August 20, 2021 

Beverly Hilton Hotel, Beverly Hills, CA  

The Annual Harold & Carole Pump Foundation Dinner returned to the Beverly Hilton’s main ballroom on Friday, August 20th!  This event is known as the Grammy’s of Sports. Past honorees have included such iconic athletes as Muhammad Ali, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell, Derek Jeter, Joe Montana, and Shaquille O’Neal, as well as legends of the entertainment industry like Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, and many others.

This year we were proud to honor the great Smokey Robinson, Isiah Thomas, John Calipari, Gale Greene, & Dan Schwab. In true “Pump fashion” Dana and David called all of their friends and received commitments from some of the biggest stars and athletes who provided once in a lifetime experiences to help raise money for their Foundation.

The mission of the Foundation is to raise funds and create awareness for the treatment and cure of cancer. By engaging the community, sports leaders and those touched by this disease, financial support is given to the development of cancer treatments, programs and services, as well as the procurement of advanced medical technology.

Congratulations to Smokey Robinson on receiving the 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of the Pump Foundation.
