WINSTON-SALEM—During this week's Wyndham Championship, Wyndham officials and golfers are taking a break from the Links to give back to the Triad community.
Anthony McRae, 16, was born premature. His mom, Cynthia, said he has been in and out of hospitals his whole life. On Tuesday, Anthony and the other patients at Brenner Children's Hospital got a little something to brighten up their stay. As part of the Day of Giving, Wyndham Worldwide and The Starlight Children's Foundation donated a Fun Center mobile entertainment unit.
It is equipped with a DVD player and a Nintendo Wii.
"It has all the Wii games, it has the sports, the bowling, the golf, which worked well for us with the Wyndham Championship, the baseball, the tennis and when the kids open that and they first start using it the smile that comes on their face is amazing," said Mary Falvey with Wyndham Worldwide.
This is the second gaming system for the hospital. It's also equipped with wheels so it can go into patients bedrooms. Cynthia McRae said she is sure her son will enjoy it.
"It will make a great difference because he's always in the bed, then they can bring the machine so he can play Wii," she said. "I love it."
Golfers Skip Kendall and Charles Warner also made a stop at Brenner's to visit the kids, sign autographs and give some Wii golf tips.
