SportsBall 2020 honors Dr. Anthony Fauci, James A Mahoney, M.D., and Vladeck, Raskin & Clark, P.C.
SportsBall 2020, the 26th Annual Black Tie & Sneakers Gala of the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health (AAIUH), was a virtual event held on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, featuring a keynote speech by Dr. Anthony Fauci, introduced by former 3-term Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg. Dr. Fauci is one of three honorees in 2020, joining James A. Mahoney, M.D., and Vladeck, Raskin & Clark, P.C.
Each year, the Institute honors individuals and organizations that are making significant contributions to urban communities in the areas of health, education, medical research, community service, and philanthropy. The funds raised at SportsBall support the Institute’s innovative community health education programs and research initiatives.
Arthur Ashe founded the Institute in 1992, just two months before his death from AIDS, in response to the disproportionate amount of illness and death in urban communities from preventable diseases. Arthur knew that many of these diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, were the result of inadequate health care delivery, late detection, and insufficient health education.
