Austin’s Playrooms Lunch & Fundraiser Returns to In-Person, Raises Over $175,000

Over 350 guests joined the Mario Lemieux Foundation at the Fairmont Hotel on Thursday, May 12 for the 23rd annual Austin’s Playrooms Lunch and Fundraiser presented by Highmark. The event, our first in-person lunch since 2019, raised over $175,000 for Austin’s Playrooms!

Austin’s Playrooms, an initiative created by Nathalie Lemieux through her own experiences, creates 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.
