Lighting Hope with Mariano Rivera

We have partnered with the New York Yankees, the Green Sports Alliance and Mariano Rivera to bring the most advanced lighting solutions to schools, non profit organizations and communities in the N.E.    Recent discoveries in lighting’s effect on human experience have opened up unlimited possibilities to improve our condition to learn, perform, heal and rest.  Our goal is to offer lighting education programs for all age groups while generating funding to freely give away lighting systems to our communities.
