SYRACUSE, N.Y. … Power management company Eaton today announced that its Ephesus Lighting business is supporting the work of Momcology, a national peer support group for pediatric cancer families, by providing complimentary tickets to 10 college football games this season. The initiative, which begins this month during September’s National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, will send families to games at the University of Florida, University of Georgia and Vanderbilt University.

“When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the whole family is affected,” said Kim Buff, founder and executive director, Momcology. “We are grateful to Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting business for providing childhood cancer families a much needed break away from the daily worries of life after diagnosis. We are thankful to Eaton for illuminating hope and healing into these families’ lives who often feel isolated and alone.”

Eaton is donating tickets for 10 families to attend college football games at these three schools to help bring a day of respite to these pediatric cancer families. Each of the universities are among the hundreds of schools that have installed Eaton’s Ephesus LED lighting system at one of its sports facilities.

“We commend the work being done by Momcology of providing peer support for families suffering through childhood cancer,” said Mike Lorenz, president, Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting business. “We are honored to provide some of their families with a memorable day together at a game at these three great universities.”

In addition to these three universities, hundreds of other sports facilities of all sizes across North America have made the switch to Eaton’s LED sports lighting system including: the University of Phoenix Stadium (Arizona Cardinals); Bridgestone Arena (Nashville Predators); and Globe Life Park (Texas Rangers).
