SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolucia, Inc. (OTCBB & OTCQB: ILED), announces today that it has launched a community outreach program that will cater to the lighting and energy conservation needs of benevolent oranizations within the company's home state of Florida and in communities in other states in which the company operates. Through "Evolucia Bright Lights", the company's new community outreach program, Evolucia will work with community leaders to identify organizations with the greatest need for safe, secure and energy efficient lighting, and provide its high performance LED (light emitting diode) lighting systems, at no cost, to those organizations.
Evolucia is pleased to have launched its community outreach program with a successful and much needed installation of its LED High Bay lights at the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota. The gymnasium installation will save the Boys & Girls Club more than 60% in electrical costs, and will require no maintenance for at least 7 years. The installation of the LED High Bay fixtures was donated by Bright Future Electric, a Sarasota-based electrical company.
"The improvement in the quality of light at our Lee Wetherington facility on Fruitville Road is truly night and day. I am amazed that the Evolucia fixtures provide that much light while using so little electricity, and we are grateful to Evolucia for contributing such an impactful gift to the children of the Boys & Girls Club," said Bill Sadlo, President of the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota.
The Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota was founded in 1965 by a group of philanthropists in Sarasota, Florida, whose sole vision was to improve the quality of life of our children. For almost 50 years, the Boys & Girls Club has been enriching the lives of local youth by providing educational and life lessons that reinforce what children and youth learn at school. Programs are outcome driven and focus on three areas of impact: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles. How kids perform in school is affected by their home life and how they spend their free time. In most cases, it's about education outside the classroom. The Boys & Girls Club has a proven record and the tools in place to measure, impact and instill the core values that will help prepare our great leaders of tomorrow. Today, the Club offers these services to thousands children in Sarasota.
Lee Wetherington, president of national award-winning home builder, Lee Wetherington Homes, and Benefactor to the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota, said, "I am impressed with both the quality of Evolucia's LED lighting products and the professionalism of the team that they have assembled. I hope our community embraces this local company, because the sales of their LED lighting systems have tremendous potential for growth both locally and globally and that will greatly benefit our community."
"The positive impact that the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota has on the lives of the children who participate in the Club's programs is truly a gift that cannot be measured. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for everyone involved with this kindhearted organization, and I am grateful to Bright Future Electric for partnering with us on the installation of the lights and happy that Evolucia could help to brighten the lives of these deserving children," said Mel Interiano, CEO of Evolucia, Inc.
