Varaluz Lighting, a leading manufacturer of sustainable lighting solutions, recently partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for Childhood Cancer Awareness during the month of September to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. The partnership featured the sale of Varaluz's best-selling Urchin pendant lights, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting St. Jude.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is dedicated to advancing cures and prevention of catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. St. Jude has made tremendous strides in the fight against childhood cancer, with a more than 80 percent survival rate.
The Urchin pendant light is comprised of recycled steel "spikes" arranged in a spherical shape. It’s a popular choice for those who want a bold, edgy fixture that makes a statement.
The Urchin pendant light is available in 3 sizes and 8 colors and finishes. This fixture can also be customized in any size and Varaluz can match any number of Pantone paint colors.
Overall, the partnership between Varaluz Lighting and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital raised over $5,000 over a period of 4 weeks. Ron Henderson, president, and lead product designer of Varaluz said, “It’s my great privilege for Varaluz to support St. Jude’s and collaborate with this incredible institution dedicated to saving children’s lives and finding a cure for cancer. It’s significant that St. Jude’s realizes the value of helping families to remain alongside their children while receiving treatment. Thank you, St. Jude, for your invaluable gift.”
