In May, Linda and Rick Hendrick hosted another successful evening filled with hope at the annual Learn Live Hope celebration at Hendrick Motorsports, followed by a celebrity golf tournament the next day. The event raised an amazing record fundraising total of over $1.7 million. Levine Children’s Hospital was honored to benefit from the generosity of donors again this year.

Learn Live Hope featured a Latin flare with Mexican-themed food and décor.  Guests were inspired to join the “Be The Match” registry after hearing the personal journey of one Levine Children’s Hospital patient, Mae Rainey.  Adopted from China and now living in Charlotte, Mae fights a rare blood disorder called thalassemia.  Mae needs a life-saving bone marrow transplant and is in search for the “perfect match.”

A heartfelt thank you to the Hendrick family and the Hendrick Marrow Program for over a decade of support that has allowed children and families across the Carolinas to access world-class care where they need it most—close to home.
