The Luxaire® brand of Johnson Controls, in partnership with Design Air, an independent distributor, recently sponsored Make-A-Wish® Wish Night in Milwaukee, WI.
The annual fundraising event ended in record-breaking results providing enough resources to grant over 100 wishes for Wisconsin children with critical illnesses.
“Design Air believes that together Nothing is Out of Reach. There are few things more important to us than helping wishes come true for children facing serious challenges,” said Dave Garvey, CFO and COO Design Air. “We are proud to partner with Luxaire in supporting Make-A-Wish.”
Make-A-Wish grants the wish of children diagnosed with a critical illness in the United States approximately every 34 minutes. Since 2001, Luxaire has donated over $4 million to 23 chapters in the organization.
“Supporting the communities where our employees and partners live and work is a commitment we value,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Ducted Systems, Johnson Controls. “Our 18-yearlong partnership with Make-A-Wish continues to be a point of passion and pride for our staff and network of distributors and contractors located around the country.”
