Hubbell Lighting "Lights It Up Blue" for Autism Awareness

By Kim Banks on April 7, 2011

Hubbell Lighting's headquarters, along with a few other Greenville, S.C. establishments - the NEXT Innovation Center, Riverplace, Westin Poinsett, BMW Zentrum Museum and Furman University's bell tower - were illuminated with special blue lights on Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2.  The effort supported the Autism Speaks™ global Light It Up Blue campaign to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day and Autism Awareness Month. We're always fans of unique lighting projects, and we were excited to "Light It Up Blue" at our headquarters for a good cause!
