David Lee Roth made a generous donation to Walk L.A. in June for Children’s Hospital L.A. in memory of Michael Anthony's grandson Rex, who died last month from a heart ailment, just two weeks after he was born. Anthony confirmed Roth's contribution to us Tuesday night.
At the time of his passing, Anthony posted the following: "I am doing the 'Walk L.A.' in June for Children’s Hospital L.A. with our families to give back a little to the hospital that did so much for my grandson and other children that come here. Our team is called 'Rex and the Heart Beaters.' Thank you from the bottom of my heart for any donation to support my walk for Children’s Hospital L.A.!"
Donations are closing in on the $18,000 mark and topping the list is Dave Roth with $10,000. Anthony told us he tried to reach out to Dave to thank him and got an email back saying his business manager would be in touch.
