Ray of Hope

The Jason Ray Foundation will host a fundraising Sunday brunch and auction at The Carolina Club on Sunday to benefit patients who have undergone organ transplantation at UNC Hospitals.

The Jason Ray Foundation was founded in honor of Jason Ray, the former UNC Tar Heels’ mascot who tragically lost his life in a hit-and-run accident while attending the NCAA basketball regionals in New Jersey in 2007. Ray had signed up to be an organ donor, and his donation of organs and tissues received worldwide attention.

Money raised at the brunch will provide a permanent memo- rial for Jason and will increase organ-donation awareness.
