The Payton Wright Foundation surprised officials at the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center with more than $2,000 worth of toys and games for the hospital’s new pediatric unit.
Foundation co-founder Patrick Wright and friend Steve Hopkins delivered the toys — Wii stations for each of the unit’s six rooms, a play castle and kitchen, stuffed animals and more — Nov. 28.
Wright and his wife, Holly, have worked with the hospital to design the pediatric unit, whose playroom is being named in honor of their daughter, Payton, who died of pediatric brain cancer.
