Hubbell Lighting is supporting the TMOTW-MWOT with a five-year pledge to assist the project through 2017, according to organization president Frank Ruby, who is also the owner of Blue Ridge Hobbies in Greenville, S.C. He said Hubbell has pledged about $80,000 of support and has assigned nine of its employees to help design the lighting systems for the project.
