The Atlanta Hawks are more just a hobby for Levenson, instead they are often seen at the good causes and projects Levenson and his wife Karen are known to support. One of the major projects funded by Levenson was the US Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, which became a pet project for the Levenson’s as Karen’s mother is a Holocaust survivor. The Atlanta Hawks team attended the museum to raise awareness of it amongst younger people in 2014.
