PTY Lighting Gives Back – Our New Charitable Giving Initiative

May 6, 2019

PTY Lighting cares about the community, and that is why we are excited to be launching our new charitable giving initiative!

This fundraising initiative for worthy charities is our way to give back to the community. The great thing is, our customers can participate easily and effortlessly. Here’s how it works.

Participating in PTY Lighting’s New Charitable Giving Initiative Is Easy!

As a customer, we want you to feel like you are getting the best value for your money. In part, we do this through providing the best quality custom lighting in the industry. We also do this through our superior customer service and knowledgeable hospitality lighting experts.

Our charitable giving initiative is yet another way for us to help provide value. We help others, and you feel good and we feel good! It’s a win/win/win all around!

What’s not to like?

The good news is, you don’t need to do anything to participate. Well, almost anything. The one thing you do need to do is to let us know which charity you want to select from our pre-vetted list of charitable organizations, foundations, and fundraising events.

Once you select your charitable cause, and we have the post purchase order received, we will donate 1% of the final order price to charity as a 50/50 donation from us and you, the customer.

This does not add anything extra to your bill. In other words, we are not passing on any additional costs to you, our valued customer. We are simply dedicated to taking some of our profits and investing it back into our community. In part, this is a “thank you” for all of the invisible support we have received throughout the years, support that has enabled us, PTY Lighting, to be a top provider in the competitive hospitality lighting business for 30 years.

Examples of What We Support Through Our Charitable Giving Initiative

PTY Lighting takes great pride in our charitable giving. Here are just some of the worthy causes we support:

Wounded Warrior Project

The Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit charity that helps our veterans through a variety of programs. The diverse programs offered include mental wellness, physical wellness, career and VA Benefits counseling, and personal independence support.

For example, during the 2018 Christmas holiday, the Wounded Warrior Project partnered with Chicago businesses, fire departments, and the Cook County Sheriff’s Office to host a day for Wounded Warriors and their families at the Brookfield Zoo. This event was a resounding success and helped veterans feel cared for and supported.

ISHP Benefit for Hollywood HEART

ISHP is the International Society of Hospitality Purchasers, and they host a yearly benefit for  Hollywood HEART. The word “HEART” stands for Hope, Education, Art, Recreation, and Therapy. This caring not-for-profit organization was founded in 1995 to provide support and services for children and youths who are directly impacted by HIV and AIDS. Through creative and therapeutic programs, affected kids can benefit from specialized emotional support, meet new friends, and learn fun new skills.

Hollywood HEART offers onsite camping programs for these kids. Unfortunately, the recent Woolsey Fire in Malibu completely destroyed the Hollywood HEART Malibu campsite. No one was injured in this fire, but now, that special campsite is gone forever.

For this reason, Hollywood HEART especially needs our support right now to fund a new kids’ campsite, which will entail considerable costs.

Bob’s Discount Golf Outing

Do you like golf? Then you will love this fun outdoor fundraiser! Bob’s Discount Golf Outing is a special charity event to raise money for non-profits supported by the Bob’s Discount Furniture Charitable Foundation. This is a project of Bob’s Discount Furniture and has been going on for three decades!

The price to play in this tournament is a little bit more expensive than your average golf game, but when you get to play golf and raise money for charity at the same time, it is well worth it. This yearly event begins with a “shotgun start” and non-golfers can join in on the fun for food as well as join live and silent auctions.

Bob’s Golf Outing raised $635,000 for children’s charities in 2018 alone, and it has generated more than $7 million for worthy causes over 31 years. The nonprofits supported in 2018 include Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Rising Sun, Family & Children’s Aid, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, March of Dimes, and Cardinal Cushing Centers.

NEWH Student Scholarship Fund

NEWH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to promote professional women in the hospitality industry. PTY Lighting is a member of the New York Chapter of NEWH and supports their scholarship drive.

NEWH has provided scholarships in excess of $6 million to more than 2,300 hospitality students with strong academic records who need monetary help.
