FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) -

Mad Anthony's Children's Foundation is cutting a big check to help critically ill children get the medical care they need.

The $125,000 donation from Mad Anthony's Children's Foundation will go their Children's Hope House, with proceeds coming from the 2018 redcoat dinner and charity classic for kids, which took place on the 22nd and 23rd of June.

The Hope House is on Lutheran Hospital's campus, and serves as a place where sick children and their families can stay while the child gets the medical care they need. The money will help the hope house serve even more families in the future, families going through a tougher time than some of us can imagine.

"A lot of these families don't know what they're going to get for free or $10, and when they walk in and see how braitful and welcoming it is, they're moved to tears and that puts into perspective the work that we do," Andrew Gritzmaker said.

The Children's Hope House says they serve as a place of rest and rejuvenation when the expense of an extended hotel stay isn't possible for kid's and their families.
