Nathalie Lemieux, wife of NHL Hall of Famer and Pittsburgh Penguin’s owner, Mario Lemieux, hosted the annual Austin’s Playroom Project Luncheon and Fundraiser earlier on Thursday at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel. More than 350 guests raised funds to support the playground project, an initiative of the Mario Lemieux Foundation. These funds will be directed toward a new Austin’s Playroom at UPMC Altoona. Austin’s Playrooms give pediatric patients a chance to be kids during an otherwise stressful time. The playrooms allow families to focus on health and healing.
