AUBURN, Ala. – The Bruce Pearl Family Foundation in conjunction with L5 Foundation, an organization dedicated to addressing the essential and basic needs of cancer patients, donated $20,000 to five charities in a ceremony in Knoxville.
Pearl accepted a $10,000 donation to an endowed scholarship in his name to Camp Koinonia, an outdoor education program for children with disabilities.
“It is very personal for my family to be a part of the L5 Foundation and for what it stands for,” said Pearl. “There are so many needy families who can benefit from this support at Camp Koinonia. It was a very special day.”
In addition, the L5 Foundation will donate $2,500 each to the Cancer Institute at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Niswonger Children’s Hospital and the Thompson Cares Fund at Thompson Cancer Survival Center Foundation.
