Guiding Light Award
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.
The “Guiding Lighting Award” was created in 2017 and presented to lighting industry companies Generation Lighting, Hinkley, Kichler, Quoizel, Satco, and WAC Lighting to honor their long-term commitment to the H Foundation and to recognize their consistent and enduring efforts to fund basic science research to find a cure cancer. The Award is given annually to an individual or company who exemplifies the leadership qualities that will guide others towards a brighter future in which no one will suffer the hardships of this horrible disease. It celebrates the community spirit that has used ingenuity to shine a spotlight on and raise money for basic science cancer research.
