Local Foundation Presents Donation to Sparrow

Posted:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The Art for Charlie Foundation donated $20,000 to the Sparrow Foundation to fund pediatric palliative care, marking it's first anniversary.

The East Lansing foundation was founded by a local family with a terminally ill child, 4-year-old Charlie Waller diagnosed with terminal brain stem cancer. It raises money through art events to provide hospice care for sick kids and families who suffer that loss.

Charlie, dressed up as a pirate, helped present the check Thursday.
