Congratulations to our longtime team member, Linda Mayou, for receiving the 2017 Albert Lexie Award from Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation!
Each year, Children’s Foundation staff and leadership identify an individual who goes above and beyond in their efforts to support the foundation and whose actions honor the legacy of Albert Lexie—a Monessen shoe shiner who donated all his tips to the hospital’s Free Care Fund for 28 years. Linda is the 3rd person ever to receive this award for her spirit of giving.
Linda has been a team member at our Monongahela Eat’n Park for more than 25 years, and has been a passionate leader within our Caring for Kids Campaign benefiting Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh for many of those years. Her efforts have resulted in the Monongahela Eat’n Park alone raising more than half a million dollars for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh through the years. Linda recently retired, but is still actively involved in our Caring for Kids Campaign.
