The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation has announced that ESPN3 will stream Scott Hamilton & Friends, hosted by Sheryl Crow, live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN on November 18 as part of ESPN’s ongoing relationship with the V Foundation.

“We are proud to bring awareness to this important event and congratulate Scott, Sheryl and the CARES team for their dedication to raising funds to find a cure for cancer,” says Kevin Martinez, Vice President, ESPN Corporate Citizenship. “Scott’s collaboration with the V Foundation and ESPN brings together the best scientific research team and the best platform for messaging the CARES mission.”
