Welcomed by Atrium Health Foundation’s Kellie McGregor and Levine Children’s Hospital Facility Executive Callie Dobbins, the Charlotte Knights were celebrated at Levine Children’s Hospital earlier this week for their generous commitment of $173,000 to renovate the hospital’s 4th floor Rehabilitation playroom. Honored guests in attendance included Dan Rajkowski, Charlotte Knights General Manager and CEO, along with Charlotte Knights players and members of the Charlotte Knights Charities – the philanthropic arm of the team. Bringing new meaning to the phrase ‘take me out to the ballgame’, the Rehabilitation playroom will be transformed into a Charlotte Knights-themed space in the coming months, complete with a baseball diamond, images of players, and more – providing an open, engaging, and therapeutic space that optimizes comfort and recovery.
Dan Rajkowski, general manager of the Charlotte Knights, leads by example, serving as a member of Levine Children’s Hospital’s Board of Ambassadors. From Pink Knights ballgames to golf tournaments and other year-round programs, this most recent gift from the Charlotte Knights to Levine Children’s Hospital marks the continuation of a remarkable 16+ year partnership between the team and Atrium Health.
