Lighting Industry’s Impact on Basic Science Cancer Research

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Since its inception in 2001, The H Foundation and its annual Goombay Bash has been celebrated and supported by a sense of community. This grassroots spirit has underscored the message that Cancer is Personal, affecting real people – families, friends, and neighbors. This year, at the 17th Annual Goombay Bash, The H Foundation is excited to honor the Lighting Industry for its contribution and partnership in the fight against cancer.


In addition, The H Foundation will introduce the inaugural “Guiding Light Award”. This award is a cooperative effort by The H Foundation and leaders from the lighting industry to recognize inspirational efforts within that industry to help find a cure for cancer. The award epitomizes the leadership qualities of those who guide others towards a brighter future in which no one should suffer the hardships of this horrible disease, and it celebrates the ingenuity of spotlighting Basic Science Cancer Research as a means to that end.

The inaugural Guiding Lighting Award will be presented collectively to six lighting industry companies to honor their commitment to the H Foundation since its inception and to recognize for their consistent and enduring efforts to fund Basic Science Research to cure cancer.

Generation Brands, Hinkley, Kichler, Quoizel, Satco, and WAC Lighting

Going forward, the Guiding Light Award will be given annually to an individual in the lighting industry. This award is a cooperative effort by The H Foundation and leaders from the lighting industry to recognize inspirational efforts within that industry to help find a cure for cancer. The award epitomizes the leadership qualities of those who would guide others towards a brighter future in which no one should suffer the hardships of this horrible disease, and it celebrates the ingenuity of spotlighting Basic Science Cancer Research as a means to that end.
