Over 370 guests joined the Mario Lemieux Foundation at The Westin on Thursday, May 11 for the 24th annual Austin’s Playrooms Lunch and Fundraiser presented by Highmark. The event, which is the main fundraiser for the Foundation’s Austin’s Playrooms, raised over $180,000.
Austin’s Playrooms were created by Nathalie Lemieux through her own experiences to create safe and comfortable spaces in medical facilities for children who are enduring extended stays, whether as a patient or as a sibling of a patient. Thanks to this annual event, the Lemieux Foundation currently has 43 Playrooms established across the United States with many more to come!
