Charlotte, NC April 28, 2010 The Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel has just unveiled a new fundraiser exhibit by a group of very special artists - the children who are patients at the Levine Children's Hospital of Charlotte.

In October of 2007, Charlotte, North Carolina became the proud home to one of the country's finest children's hospitals, Levine Children's Hospital. The 234-bed hospital cares for more children on any given day than any other hospital in North Carolina. Levine Children's Hospital is an exciting new spaced designed to capture a child's attention, by stimulating his or her imagination, and ultimately promoting a positive, healing attitude.

Levine Children's Hospital houses the region's only dedicated pediatric cardiac intensive care unit, cardiovascular intervention and surgery program, transplant program and dialysis unit. In addition, the Charlotte hospital provides family-friendly services and amenities including ongoing educational programs and child life specialists to make the child's stay the most comfortable possible.

According to Joseph Blewitt, Assistant General Manager, "We are strong supporters of the Levine Children's Hospital and all they do, and are therefore proud to provide a special place for these young artists to display their work. To show them how meaningful their contributions are to us, we have given each child a special Renaissance Artist Certificate and pin in recognition of their creativity." Blewitt also notes that the children's artwork is for sale should guests wish to make a purchase. Proceeds from this art fundraiser in Charlotte go to Levine Children's Hospital.

The children's artwork will be on display at the Charlotte, North Carolina hotel indefinitely.
