Beverly Hills, California, USA. 20th August, 2021. The Harold and Carole Pump Foundation held its 21st Annual Pump Foundation Gala which benefits cancer treatment and research. The foundation was started by two brothers, Dana and David Pump, in the name of their parents Harold and Carole Pump, who both died of cancer. By engaging the community, sports leaders, and those touched by cancer, the foundation provides financial support for the development of cancer treatments, programs and services, and the procurement of advanced medical technology.

Each year, the foundation honors those for their contributions, and this year the honorees were music legend Smokey Robinson, NBA All-Star Isiah Thomas, basketball coach John Calipari, Gale Greene, and Dan Schwab. The red carpet was packed with media as sports figures and celebrities arrived at the event and walked the carpet.
