We talked about MMAVictor’s own Soa “The Hulk” giving back earlier today, but let’s also not forget what Dave Bautista is doing today!
NOT JUST A FIGHTER, WWE CHAMP DAVE BAUTISTA TAKES A TIME OUT TO GIVE BACK
The Carter Lay Foundation and Dave Bautista to make large donation to Hasbro Children’s Hospital
(Los Angeles, CA – October 4, 2012) — Philanthropist Carter Lay and The Carter Lay Foundation will present Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, RI with a sizable donation Thursday, October 4th at 3:30PM EST on behalf of former WWE Champ Dave’s Bautista’s Mixed Martial Arts debut. Carter Lay, along with John Ryan of June Entertainment and Crystal Fambrini, is also an Executive Producer and official headlining sponsor of Bautista’s MMA debut event held at The Dunkin’ Donuts Center this Saturday, October 6th. The donation will go toward aiding children in the fight against cancer.
The Carter Lay Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by heir to the Lay potato chip fortune, Carter Lay. TCLF aims to help individuals, groups and other organizations focused on making the world a more peaceful and happy place. Bautista, a long time friend of Carter Lay, is a huge supporter of The Carter Lay Foundation and its mission to help underserved children throughout the world.
“Having 2 children of my own, losing one of my best childhood friends to cancer, losing my Dad recently to cancer, as well as battling cancer myself it is a fight that I am always going to support and give back too. Being able to donate to Hasbro with Dave while I’m here supporting him with the fight is perfect timing. Any charity that has to do with children is close to my heart. There is nothing better than seeing smiles on kids’ faces when you help them.” – Carter Lay
Recently, Lay partnered with Guns N Roses drummer Matt Sorum in donating instruments to underserved children on behalf of Adopt the Arts. The pair shattered records by donating more than 300 guitars! The Carter Foundation currently supports Artists for Peace and Justice, After School All Stars, St Jude’s Hospital, Los Angeles Children’s Hospital, and After School All Stars as well as Adopt the Arts. Carter Lay last year battled cancer and WON – he is cancer-free! Follow Carter Lay on Twitter: @carterlay and “Like” The Carter Lay Foundation on Facebook.
